A new study from the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation uses case study data from the Home Visiting Career Trajectories Study (a national study of home visitors) to identify work-related factors that influence recruitment and retention of high-quality staff. Home visitors suggested that innovative efforts to identify well-fit candidates from the hiring stage can improve retention and that a flexible agency culture, autonomy, and collegiality contribute help boost morale. Supervisory support is a key factor in retention. These findings are critical as child outcomes are supported by consistency and quality in home visitors specifically, and early childhood workforces broadly. #workforce
