Abstract

The current report focuses on understanding changes in direct care workers turnover and vacancy rates among a longitudinal sample of 2,964 social care providers (employers) in England. The panel of 2,964 providers analysed in this report is studied at two time points, January 2008 (T1) to January 2010 (T2), used to investigate changes in turnover and vacancy rates as well as perceived reasons for leaving a job. The sample is satisfactorily representative of the overall NMDS-SC returns at T1. The specific aims of the analysis were to explore the following questions:1. Have reported turnover and vacancy rates among care workers changed from 2008 - 2010 and in what ways?2. What are the characteristics of organisations, which reported an improvement (a decline) in care worker turnover and vacancy rates compared to those who experienced higher turnover and greater vacancies?3. Have the reasons for leaving jobs identified by providers changed over the time period 2008-2010?4. Are there any significant differences in reasons for leaving among groups of providers that have different patterns of turnover and vacancy rates?The current report focuses on understanding changes in direct care workers turnover and vacancy rates among a longitudinal sample of 2,964 social care providers (employers) in England.
