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.

    Повеќе и подобри работни места во секторот на услуги за домашна нега

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Како што старее населението во Европа, бројот на возрасни лица што имаат потреба од долгорочна грижа е сè поголем. Меѓутоа, има постојан недостиг на работна сила во секторот за здравство и социјална грижа; особено недостига добро квалификуван персонал. Во време кога невработеноста во Европа е висока, во оваа студија се разгледува како да се искористи вишокот на работна сила за да се реши недостигот од работна сила во секторот за грижа и како да се поттикнат луѓето да работат долгорочно во овој сектор каде што постојано има високи нивоа на смена на персоналот. Во студијата се испитани вкупно 30 студии на случаи во 10 земји-членки на ЕУ анализирајќи ги иницијативите што беа успешни при создавањето повеќе работни места во секторот или подобрување на квалитетот на работните места со двојна цел да се привлечат нови регрути и да се задржи постоечкиот персонал.
