Manager relations cause two in five carers to consider leaving

Two in five care workers have considered leaving their role because of their manager, a report by the Care Workers Charity has revealed.

Well over half of carers surveyed told the charity that it would make a positive difference to them in their role if one-to-one support with their manager was improved.

The results of the charity’s research have been published in a new report, the Beating Heart Of Care: Supporting Care Workers Better.

Polling the views of 200 care staff, and their managers, the charity finds that mental wellbeing tops the concerns of senior care workers and managers: 42 per cent of care workers said they experienced stress, and 27 per cent anxiety often or most of the time as a result of their work.

Other major concerns include recruiting care staff, dealing with sick leave, retaining care staff and care staff responsibilities. Over half of care workers have considered leaving their role in the past three years, because of mental health concerns, the Care Workers Charity warns

The report makes four recommendations:

  • Create a culture of wellbeing
  • Build a supportive and appreciative workplace
  • Establish a community of care workers
  • Provide training and support for managers and supervisors
