It is a major challenge for eldercare employers in all countries to recruit, train and retain care staff. While most care workers find their relationships with care users rewarding, a considerable proportion seriously consider quitting their jobs – especially those who find that the organisational conditions have deteriorated, making it difficult to provide good enough care. Marketisation has changed the landscape of care and affected the work environments of careworkers in various ways. Eldercare services are rapidly changing in all the Nordic countries but the trends are different when it comes to the introduction of market reforms and the mix of public, not-for-profit and for-profit providers of care (Meagher & Szebehely 2013b). To capitalise on the possibilities afforded by a survey carried out in 2005 as part of the NORDCARE project, this project repeats the survey and investigate how work contents, conditions and environments may have changed in 2015. The survey will be conducted in Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway, We will use the data to compare over time and between countries, as well as between publicly and privately employed care workers. This project will help us to identify the conditions under which care workers are willing to continue in their jobs and to identify the organisational models that best enable them to provide individualised care to service users. The project is led by prof. Marta Szebehely, Stockholm University and involves cooperation with amongst other the Danish union representing care workers, FOA
