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.

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Waqt li l-popolazzjoni tal-Ewropa qed tixjieħ, in-numru ta’ adulti li jeħtieġu kura fit-tul qed jiżdied. Hemm, madankollu, nuqqasijiet persistenti ta’ ħaddiema fis-settur tas-saħħa u dak soċjali; l-istaff ikkwalifikat sew huwa partikolarment nieqes. Fi żmien meta l-qgħad madwar parti kbira mill-Ewropa huwa għoli, dan l-istudju jikkunsidra kif dan il-grupp ta’ ħaddiema żejda jista’ jintuża biex jissolva n-nuqqas ta’ ħaddiema fis-settur tal-kura, u kif in-nies jistgħu jitħeġġu jaħdmu fit-tul f'settur li għandu livelli għoljin ta’ ċaqliq tal-istaff b'mod konsistenti. L-istudju jeżamina t-total ta’ 30 studju ta’ każijiet madwar 10 Stati Membri tal-UE, fejn ġew analizzati inizjattivi li kienu ta’ suċċess jew fil-ħolqien ta’ aktar impjiegi fis-settur, jew fit-titjib tal-kwalità tal-impjiegi tiegħu, bl-għan doppju li jattiraw rekluti ġodda kif ukoll iżommu l-istaff eżistenti.
