Join ANCOR on February 13th for a webinar on the National Core Indicators (NCI) 2015 Staff Stability Survey results and the insights they offer into the current experience of our direct support workforce in 17 states. National Core Indicators™ (NCI™) works with states to collect comprehensive data on the workforce of DSPs providing supports to adults (age 18 and over) with IDD. The goal is to help states assess the stability of the state DSP workforce, benchmark and compare their workforce data to those of other states in order to make improvements through policy or programmatic changes. Mary Lou Bourne, Director of National Core Indicators and Quality at the National Association of Directors of Developmental Disability Services (NASDDDS), and Dorothy Hiersteiner, NCI Project Coordinator at Human Services Research Institute, will discuss the 2015 survey results to include:
- An Overview of survey participants
- High-level results regarding wages, turnover, tenure, benefits, and vacancy rates, and
- Expectations of how results will be used
Interested in shaping the presentation? Tell us what you want to know about the 2015 Staff Stability Survey by submitting your top 3 questions to ANCOR (deadline to submit questions is February 1).
A recording will be made available for registrants.
