CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI, June 2, 2022—To help address the critical staffing shortages facing our service providers, Macomb County Community Health (MCCMH) has developed a recruitment and retention plan with financial incentives. Effective June 1, 2022:
All new hires are eligible for a one-thousand dollar ($1,000.00) incentive payment after completing thirty (30)-days of employment.
Staff hired between January 1, 2022, and May 30, 2022, are eligible for a one-thousand-dollar ($1,000.00) incentive payment after 6 months employment.
Staff hired prior to January 1, 2022, are eligible for a two-thousand-dollar ($2,000.00) incentive payment on their hire date anniversary.
Staff who refer a new hire are eligible for a five-hundred-dollar ($500.00) referral payment after new hire completes their first ninety days.
These bonuses are available to all current (both full-and part-time) staff employed by a contracted MCCMH service provider on January 1, 2022, and will be offered through December 31, 2022. These incentive payments do not apply to MCCMH staff or for MCMH positions.
“MCCMH is committed to supporting our providers, and this incentive payment program will help them attract and retain qualified staff to address the growing need for mental health services,” MCCMH CEO Dave Pankotai explained.
