about this bookdeutsch english
In times of demographic change, the skill shortage issues a big challenge to the care of elderly, care-dependent people. One approach to successfully counteract this shortage of personnel is a stronger vocational integration of professionals with a migration background. In order to provide this target group with a long-term occupational perspective and to permanently retain them in the geriatric care industry, one requires information on their employment situation and their previous job retention as well as on favourable or obstructive conditions. What ties them to their job in care? How do they evaluate their vocational situation? So far, no study has considered these questions in the context of in-patient and out-patient geriatric care.
The presented dissertation fills this research gap and provides novel insights into the employment situation and job retention of professionals with a migration background, working in an in-patient and out-patient geriatric care in Germany. Within the scope of her empirical work, Florence Terrier presents uncharted biographies, motives and goals of the examined geriatric care professionals with a migration background. She develops an explanatory model that describes the factors, influencing job retention within the target group. From this model, she successfully derives implementable design recommendations that support the retention of professionals in care jobs.
The book is addressed to lecturers, students, experts and practitioners in business economics, health economics and, particularly, care economics.
