Nearly three-quarters of care home executives admit they are uncertain about the impact that Britain’s impending exit from the European Union will have on their earnings power.
Asked what effect they expect Brexit to have on their salary prospects in 2017, an overwhelming 73% of UK care home professionals said they had no real feeling for whether it will enhance or lessen their chances of a pay rise, according to initial findings from the Care Home Professional Job Satisfaction Survey.
The research does suggest, however, that more people think it likely that Brexit will have negative repercussions for industry salaries.
27% of respondents said they think Brexit will dent the chances of their salaries increasing, while not a single person said it would improve their chances of a salary rise.
The indifference towards the impact of Brexit on salary growth comes after we revealed yesterday that 40% of care home executives are earning more than this time last year.
Full analysis of the Care Home Professional 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.
