“Building Knowledge to Improve Workforce Outcomes
The Quality Improvement Center for Workforce Development (QIC-WD) is dedicated to understanding how to improve child welfare workforce outcomes.
Staff recruitment and retention are persistent challenges for many child welfare agencies. In addition to being costly, staff turnover can negatively impact the relationship between families and the agency.
These challenges are compounded by a lack of research on effective strategies to attract and retain child welfare workers.
The QIC-WD will synthesize the current state of trends and research and generate new knowledge about effective strategies to improve workforce outcomes.
Through a five-year cooperative agreement with the Children’s Bureau, the QIC-WD is led by University of Nebraska-Lincoln in partnership with experts from University of Colorado, Denver; University of Louisville; University of Tennessee, Knoxville; C.F. Parry Associates; CLH Strategies & Solutions; and Great Eastern Consulting.”
