During the CARE Launch stage you are set up in a task management software to ensure you hit all necessary items to efficiently open your doors. Your business coach will assist you with licensure as well to keep the process moving.
Next, you complete CARE Sales and CARE Recruit & Retention, a virtual series of professionally produced training videos and quizzes that prepare you to successfully operate and market your new business as well as recruit and retain employees.
Once you complete certain benchmarks, you attend a hands-on 40-hour training program at the flagship location in Omaha, Nebraska. You’ll experience A Place At Home in-action and interact with the staff to understand how the day-to-day business actually runs through a combination of classroom and on-the-job training. You will learn the ins and outs of procedures, operations, and marketing, including:
With a hands-on approach to learning, you will feel confident and well-prepared to efficiently open the doors to your new business. After your doors have opened you aren’t left on your own. We will continue your weekly calls to see you put your training into action and gauge if you need any further training if you don’t hit your initial KPIs. Once you hit established benchmarks in CARE Launch it will signify you’re ready to activate the next stage, CARE Coaching.
After you’ve gained your footing and have hit your initial KPIs you are ready for CARE Coaching. We understand how important it is to have someone to turn to when there are questions. The CARE Coaching stage provides a guiding light with KPIs, consistency, and best practices for your operations as you grow. We are here to help mentor you, keep a pulse on your business, and help you grow. Your coaching calls will consist of the following touchpoints:
The relationship that is forged through this level of communication and support not only provides you with the confidence that you can run your day-to-day operations but also build a successful business that makes a difference in your community. This attention and coaching are in place to help you hit key benchmarks to activate the next stage of CARE Track, called ‘We are CARE‘.
