Rewarding Work’s New Job Board Approaches 2,000 Postings

Non-profit Rewarding Work Resources of Brookline (www.RewardingWork.org) launched an automated Job Board less than a year ago to improve the way elders and individuals of all ages with disabilities hire in-home caregivers. Since then, nearly 2,000 job openings have been posted free of charge – highlighting the growing need for in-home caregivers, such as personal care and respite workers.

Rewarding Work, which develops and manages online personal care and respite directories throughout Massachusetts and in seven other states, relied partly on funding from a technology grant from the Office of Attorney General Maura Healey to automate its manual Job Board. The early success of the Job Board has surprised Rewarding Work’s Elenore Parker.

“We optimistically projected a total of 80 to 100 job postings per month, but we are seeing almost double that amount. The quality and variety of jobs that are posted are also helping us recruit workers, who complete a free online profile before they can apply for a position on our Job Board. The nearly 2,000 jobs we’ve posted so far have attracted more than 12,000 worker responses.” Parker says.

The Job Board is free of charge to anyone with an active subscription to the Rewarding Work website. Subscriptions to the website are free to Mass Health PCA employers and families receiving services through the MA Department of Developmental Services (DDS). Individuals and families who do not qualify for state-sponsored programs may subscribe at a low cost, starting at $10.

“The advantage of our website is that it is affordable and specifically designed to connect elders and individuals with disabilities with qualified workers. We are delighted that the Job Board is making the recruiting and hiring process much easier for thousands of Massachusetts individuals, families and caregivers,” Parker added.

Founded as a non-profit organization in 2004, Rewarding Work operates the Massachusetts website in conjunction with the MA PCA Workforce Council and MA DDS. The Directory has a database of more than 7,000 workers in Massachusetts who want to work with elders and individuals of all ages with disabilities.
