As challenges to increasing DSP wages carry on, it can be incredibly difficult for providers to determine ways to retain Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) outside of providing pay increases. However, there are myriad strategies that can help create a work culture that supports the well-being of DSPs and encourages better retention. In this webinar, Arlene Bridges and Nellie Galindo of Relias will provide examples of best practices for retaining DSPs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Effective onboarding strategies to encourage retention
  • How to manage DSP burnout and compassion fatigue
