New Workforce Report Released
On October 14, 2020 by Jenna Kellerman
A new workforce report was released by PHI, titled Would You Stay? Rethinking Direct Care Job Quality.
The research examines how COVID-19 reinforced and amplified the long-standing challenges facing direct care workers and the long-term care sector.
This report takes a hard look at direct caregiving jobs – the quality, compensation, training, inequalities, perceived lack of opportunity, and the impact of COVID-19. It also introduces a new framework for direct care job quality.
This report is the fourth installment in a yearlong series of reports examining the importance and impact of the direct care workforce. The final comprehensive report will be released in January 2021.
