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.

    Services de soins à domicile: des emplois plus nombreux et de meilleure qualité

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound
    Avec le vieillissement de la population européenne, le nombre d’adultes nécessitant des soins de longue durée augmente. Toutefois, la pénurie de main-d’œuvre, et notamment de personnel qualifié, persiste dans le domaine des soins de santé et de l’aide sociale. À l’heure où le chômage est élevé dans la majeure partie de l’Europe, la présente étude examine comment utiliser cet excédent de main-d’œuvre pour pallier le manque de personnel dans le secteur des soins, et comment encourager les gens à travailler durablement dans un secteur où les taux de rotation du personnel sont constamment élevés. Elle examine au total 30 études de cas dans dix États membres de l’Union européenne, analysant les initiatives qui ont permis de créer plus d’emplois dans ce secteur ou d’améliorer la qualité de ces emplois, dans le double objectif d’attirer de nouvelles recrues et de fidéliser le personnel existant.
