abstract
Background: Turnover of nursing staff is a major challenge for healthcare settings and for healthcare in general, urging the need to improve retention. Aim: The aim was to explore the prospective relations between personal and psychosocial work-related factors and actual turnover among Belgian healthcare workers. Methods: Predictors of actual turnover were assessed using the longitudinal Belgian data from the Nurses Early Exit Study (NEXT). Two self-administered questionnaires with a time lag of one year were distributed, covering physical and psychosocial work-related factors, private life, turnover intentions and future perspectives. During follow-up, 90 employees who left the organization voluntary (leavers) and who had a complete data set were identified. These subjects were each matched with two stayers based on gender, age and organization type. Multiple logistic analyses were performed. Results: The first model adjusting for education level showed that quantitative job demands, job satisfaction, burnout, work-home interference, commitment to the institution, pay satisfaction, effort-reward imbalance and intent to leave the organization were significantly associated with actual turnover. When additionally adjusting for intent to leave the organization, job satisfaction (OR 0.29; 95% CI 0.13-0.62) and work-home interference (OR 1.35; 95% CI 1.00-1.81) were found to be the most important independent predictors of turnover. Conclusion: To tackle turnover, special attention should be given to turnover intention, work-home interference and job satisfaction because these risk factors were found to be the strongest predictors of actual turnover among nurses and nursing aids.
