Aspen Institute Profiles Direct-Care Workforce, PHI

May 9, 2013

A new report by the Aspen Institute provides an overview of the direct-care workforce while spotlighting PHI’s efforts to support direct-care workers over the last 22 years.

The report (pdf) singles out PHI’s workforce and curriculum development and policy teams for their devotion to promoting quality care through quality direct-care jobs.

“As an employer, trainer, research organization and advocate, PHI is strategically and uniquely positioned within the industry it seeks to change,” the report says.

The report is part of “Reinventing Low-Wage Work: Ideas That Can Work for Employees, Employers and the Economy,” the Aspen Institute’s ongoing series on low-wage workers.

Last year, PHI Strategic Advisor Steven Dawson was among the panelists at an Aspen Institute discussion on the direct-care workforce in Washington, DC.
