To stay or to leave? : A quantative study about home care assistants' job satisfaction and their intent to switch jobs or career path. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between home care assistants’ job satisfaction and the intent to switch jobs or career path. We also aimed to examine the correlation between home care assistants’ form of employment and their intent to switch jobs or career path. Given the fast approaching difficulties recruiting an adequate amount of care staff in elderly care to cover the demand of care staff in the light of the population at large getting older, which means there are progressively more older people for the younger population to care for. A quantitative study was performed on 74 home care assistants. To analyze our results we used Herzberg’s two-factor theory, the social psychology theory of attitudes and job satisfaction. Our result showed that our respondents were particularly satisfied with the relationship with the care recipients, but it also showed that they were not more inclined to switch jobs or career path when they were dissatisfied with the relationship with the care recipients. The result also showed that the full time employees compared to part time employees had a higher intention to leave their employer. In conclusion, we gathered that there are several components that affect the home care assistants’ inclinations to switch jobs or career path.
