Respect & Worker Retention: NCWWI 1-page Summary

This document summarizes the article “Respect in the Workplace: A Mixed Methods Study of Retention and Turnover in the Voluntary Child Welfare Sector”, which examines how perceptions of respect impact child welfare workers’ attitudes toward their jobs and results show workers who perceived greater respect at their jobs were less likely to think about leaving, as were older workers, while workers with a social work degree (Bachelor’s or Master’s) were 60% more likely to intend to leave.
