AnnotationThe implications of staff turnover are briefly reviewed in this paper, and used as a basis for a study of the extent of staff turnover in the residential care sector. Using data on the personal characteristics of 8588 staff employed in residential care homes in England and Wales during 1976-1977, the study examined the individual propensities to change jobs and to leave social work-related employment altogether. These propensities were founds to be significantly associated with age, sex, length of service, basic education and professional qualifications. (AKM).
