Future Focus is an investment in care worker personal development and wellbeing, with retention as the outcome

Future Focus

Future Focus is a fresh, innovative and cost-effective approach to radically improve care worker retention. It addresses all the most crititcal factors behind staff turnover, working with each individual to develop and enhance human qualities such as resilience, personal awareness, motivation, foundations of good communication and ability to create successful relationships. 

Talent For Care - 16 Week Programme

Within a well tested framework, we tailor the approach to the specific retention needs of each organisation we work with, to maximise engagement and the sense of belonging for all participants.

And we move quickly! We can launch pilots for cohourts of 6-12 participants within three weeks of go-ahead.

Future Focus is a 16 weeks program, with a final touch point at 20 weeks, originally developed to improve the retention of A+E staff in NHS Trusts, under similar circumstances and working conditions to most care workers:
  • Focused on the person, on the individual and their engagement, creates a learning experience which supports both the employer and employee, to strengthen the sense of belonging to the organisation.
  • Develops a community and re-enforces the sharing of essential values.
  • Provides both individual and group support, with key involvement from line managers.
  • Offers a balance of face to face and remote interaction, through a variety of easy-to-access tools (e.g. dedicated portal, Skype, webinars).
  • Makes best use of on-line assignments (e.g. questionnaires, temperature checks, writing a journal).
  • Encourages learning about how to support each other as a team.
  • Develops trust and a strong relationship with line managers and more established colleagues.
  • Facilitates learning, to successfully apply reflective practices (learning to pay attention, listening to ourselves, coming face to face with our assumptions, noticing patterns, changing the way we see).

The balance of face to face and remote interaction, with support from on-line tools, helps to maximise retention and engagement, while allowing the roll-out to relatively large teams, in a cost-effective way.

Motivation and well-being are predicted both by identification with clients and by organizational identification. As anticipated, care workers indicated higher levels of identification with clients than with the organization, but levels of motivation and well-being are best predicted by the latter.

Social and relational identification as determinants of care workers’ motivation and well-being
