08/14/2015

The study described in this report draws from the conceptual model and literature review discussed above to test the following hypotheses pertaining to home health worker job satisfaction and intent to leave the job. Specifically, this study examines the extent to which, controlling for demographic, labor market, and agency characteristics:

  • Supportive workplace and organizational culture characteristics will be positively correlated with job satisfaction and negatively correlated with intent to leave.
  • Compensation (wages and benefits) will be positively correlated with job satisfaction and negatively correlated with intent to leave.
  • Job stressors or demands will be negatively correlated with job satisfaction and positively correlated with intent to leave the job.
  • Job satisfaction will be negatively correlated with intent to leave the job. The factors that influence intent to leave will differ for workers with high levels of job satisfaction and those with low levels of job satisfaction.
