Think integration, think workforce: three steps to workforce integration

Today the Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) has published Think integration, think workforce: three steps to workforce integration.

Aimed at workforce leaders and senior workforce specialists, the paper identifies a range of workforce implications arising from integrating health and social care and identifies clear steps to support workforce integration.

Think integration, think workforce is based on a review of literature on the subject as well as interviews with sector leaders and workforce specialists, including a recent round table seminar which discussed the early findings.

The paper identifies three steps for workforce leaders to promote integration from a workforce perspective:

Be clear about the local integration agenda, including the various routes to integration.
Address the integrated workforce management challenge to ensure the right people with the right skills and behaviour are in place to deliver integrated services around individuals’ needs.

Implement successful workforce change by addressing a range of operational and strategic questions by taking an inclusive approach.
