Welcome to Talent for Care

In our view, care worker retention is the number one priority for workforce sustainability. More of the same will not work, a fresh approach is required.

Our recent retention surveys, in partnership with Care England and the UKHCA, highlighted investing in personal development of care staff, improving leadership and pursuing innovation as essential factors to transform care worker retention.

That’s what Future Focus does, sharing key lessons on staff retention from the healthcare sector. Future Focus is an investment in care worker development, with retention as the outcome.
