Factors Affecting Job Satisfaction among Agency-Employed Home Health Aides
February 12, 2016
This journal article uses survey data from more than 3,700 home health aides to determine which factors contribute to a feeling of satisfaction with their jobs. The researchers found that higher wages and benefits correlated with strong job satisfaction. Additionally, a positive feeling about the importance of their jobs and strong, meaningful support from supervisors were also strongly correlated with high job-satisfaction rates. The researchers say that their findings point toward the need for high-quality training and the development of interventions and supportive programs designed to keep aides satisfied and turnover low.
