Throughout October and November, Skills for Care is putting the spotlight on retaining staff. Over the next two months they’ll be sharing information and ideas through blogs, articles, and social media posts to help care provdiers #RetainToGain.  

Investing in staff retention is vital to the success of any organisation. It helps with the continuity of high-quality care, staff wellbeing, time and cost savings, and positive Care Quality Commission (CQC) ratings.

Employers with a turnover of less than 10% told us that their main activities contributing to staff retention were:

  • investing in learning and development
  • embedding the values of their organisation
  • celebrating organisational and individual achievements
  • involving colleagues in decision making.
