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.

    Nové a lepšie pracovné miesta v oblasti opatrovateľských služieb v domácnosti

    Autor(-i): 
    Eurofound
    So starnutím obyvateľstva Európy narastá počet dospelých ľudí, ktorí potrebujú dlhodobú starostlivosť. V sektore zdravotnej a sociálnej starostlivosti však pretrváva nedostatok pracovnej sily, čo sa vzťahuje najmä na kvalifikovaných pracovníkov. V období vysokej nezamestnanosti vo väčšine Európy sa táto štúdia zaoberá možnosťami, ako by bolo možné vyriešiť nedostatok pracovnej sily v sektore opatrovateľských služieb využitím všeobecného nadbytku pracovnej sily, a ako by bolo možné podnietiť ľudí k dlhodobej práci v sektore, ktorý dlhodobo trpí vysokou mierou fluktuácie zamestnancov. Štúdia sa zaoberá celkove 30 prípadovými štúdiami v desiatich členských štátoch EÚ a analyzuje iniciatívy, ktoré viedli k vytvoreniu nových pracovných miest v sektore alebo k zlepšeniu kvality pracovných miest. Cieľom týchto iniciatív bolo prilákať nových pracovníkov a zároveň udržať súčasných zamestnancov.
