Staffing and maintaining competence in public elderly care during Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic during 2020 and -21 has put intense light on working conditions in elderly care. This branch has a long history of difficulties regarding staffing and competence. Good staffing is a prerequisite for good quality care, and in order to recruit, create and develop the right competence, the employers need long-term strategies. The article is based on an interview study of 15 small and large municipalities in Sweden, conducted during the autumn of 2020 and the spring of 2021, focusing recruitment and organization of staff in the municipal elderly care. The study shows the importance of competent staff and good organization in dealing with a crisis situation. Recruiting and retaining staff is a process that requires a good employer brand, and this is handled by the surveyed municipalities in very different ways. 

Abstract [sv]

Covid-19-pandemin under 2020 och 2021 har satt intensivt ljus på arbetsförhållandena inom äldreomsorgen. Denna bransch har en lång historia av svårigheter med bemanning och kompetensförsörjning. God personalförsörjning är en förutsättning för omsorg av god kvalitet, och för att rekrytera, skapa och utveckla rätt kompetens behöver arbetsgivarna ha långsiktiga strategier. Denna artikel bygger på en intervjustudie av 15 större och mindre kommuner i Sverige, genomförd under hösten 2020 och våren 2021, som fokuserar på rekrytering och organisation av personal i den kommunala äldreomsorgen. Studien visar på vikten av kompetent personal och god organisation för att hantera en krissituation. Att rekrytera och behålla personal är processer som kräver ett gott arbetsgivarvarumärke, och detta hanteras väldigt olika av de undersökta kommunerna.
