Investments made by care home operators into staff training appear to be paying off, with the overwhelming majority of professionals in the sector giving the thumbs up to the level of support they receive.
Some 58% of respondents to the Care Home Professional Job Satisfaction Survey so far insist they are “satisfied” with the current level of training they receive to carry out their role effectively.
32% of respondents, meanwhile, said they wish they could get more training than they are currently afforded.
Only a handful of respondents think they receive “too much training”, while a tiny proportion claim they receive no training at all.
The opportunity to attend an external training course is the favoured option for care home executives. 52% of those polled say that attending a course off-site offers the most effective form of training in their opinion.
Having an outside trainer come into their place of work also ranked highly, with 36% of workers citing this as their preferred option.
Full analysis of the Care Home Job Satisfaction Survey will continue as the results come in and we are urging everybody to take part in order to create the best possible data.
The survey is completely anonymous and does not require any obligatory contact information to be filled in.
