BookJane Partners with OneHSN to Solve Labor Shortages in Child Care Centres

BookJane is pleased to announce that they have partnered with One Human Service Network (OneHSN) to support up to 450 child care providers across the District of Columba, with their innovative, leading-edge shift call-out platform.

BookJane will make it easier for child care centers to fill shifts with highly qualified staff by automating and enhancing the shift callout process while also connecting to a substitute pool of qualified child care workers for facilities to leverage when shifts cannot be filled in real-time. 

Child care providers in the District of Columbia area have been experiencing severe staffing shortages as COVID-19 exacerbated already short supplies of qualified child care workers. Limiting accessibility to affordable childcare and jeopardizing economic recovery as parents are prevented from returning to work in order to care for their children. 

By implementing BookJane, child care facilities will be able to use their workforce more efficiently by instantly connecting with available, underutilized staff and empowering them to accept new shifts based on their own personal availability. This gives the workforce the flexibility to work when they want. With the J360 Workforce, the District of Columbia will be able to reduce administration time by over 50% and increase staff retention by 15-25%.

BookJane’s J360 Workforce will equip child care centers with a full suite of capabilities, including: 

  • Automated call-out to instantly broadcast open shifts to available staff in real-time
  • The child care workers will have access to a mobile app to centralize all shift information and empower staff to accept new shifts 
  • Team communications to centralize all announcements and messaging
  • End-to-End scheduling to create, manage and monitor complex schedules
  • Child care agency integration to access a wider pool of available qualified staff 

“We are thrilled to be partnering with OneHSN to transform child care in the District of Columbia.” Says Curtis Khan, CEO and Founder of BookJane “Innovative technology plays an important role in delivering quality care. With the J360 Workforce, Child Care facilities will not only be able to improve the efficiency of their childcare centres and ensure they are providing the best care possible but they will also be able to offer more flexibility and control to staff which is vital to recruitment and retention.”
