Recruitment and Retention: What’s Influencing the Decisions of Public Health Workers?

Overview

In 2010, the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice (Council on Linkages) conducted a survey to explore recruitment and retention within the US public health workforce. The survey considered factors that influenced individuals’ decisions to take and remain in jobs in the public health field, as well as their satisfaction with elements of the environments in which they worked, including organizational leadership, management, and professional development. Potential survey participants were identified using the TRAIN learning management network, and nearly 12,000 individuals shared their experiences. This Council on Linkages’ report, Recruitment and Retention: What’s Influencing the Decisions of Public Health Workers?, summarizes the results of this exploration. ​The dataset containing responses from the 11,640 individuals on which these results are based is also available for further research by completing the Public Health Foundation’s Data Use Agreement.
