As Europe’s population ages, the number of adults needing long-term care is increasing. There are, however, persistent labour shortages in the health and social care sector; well-qualified staff are particularly lacking. At a time when unemployment across much of Europe is high, this study considers how this pool of surplus labour might be used to solve the care sector’s labour shortage, and how people might be encouraged to work long term in a sector that has consistently high levels of staff turnover. The study examines a total of 30 case studies across 10 EU Member States, analysing initiatives that were successful in either creating more jobs in the sector, or improving the quality of its jobs, with the dual aim of attracting new recruits and retaining existing staff. The 10 country reports (Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom) are available - see Related content. An executive summary is also available.

    Más y mejores empleos en el servicio de la atención domiciliaria

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound
    A medida que la población de Europa envejece, aumenta el número de adultos que necesitan una atención a largo plazo. Sin embargo, existe una constante escasez de mano de obra en el sector de la atención sanitaria y social; hay una carencia de personal bien cualificado. En un momento en el que el nivel de desempleo es alto en casi toda Europa, este estudio examina cómo se puede usar este superávit de mano de obra para resolver el problema de la escasez de trabajadores en el sector de la atención, y cómo se puede animar a la gente a trabajar a largo plazo en un sector que tiene, de manera regular, grandes niveles de rotación del personal. Este estudio examina un total de 30 estudios de casos realizados en 10 Estados miembros de la Unión Europea, analizando las iniciativas que tuvieron éxito en la creación de empleo en el sector o mejorando la calidad de estos empleos, con el doble objetivo de atraer a nuevos empleados y de retener al personal ya existente.
