The QIC-WD is identifying national child welfare workforce trends and evidence-based strategies for addressing common workforce issues. Trends may include:

  • Long-standing challenges and opportunities such as organizational culture and climate, high employee turnover, or low staff morale
  • Current practices related to onboarding, professional development, and performance management
  • Innovative approaches to recruitment and hiring

To identify trends the QIC-WD will gather information from state, county, and Tribal reports; explore national workforce trends (e.g., through the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics); and conduct an annual national benchmarking survey of child welfare human resource professionals.
