Scarcities of qualified personnel are a substantial problem in securing an adequate workforce. At the same time, increasing wages to secure an adequate workforce is not always possible or sufficiently effective, and other ways of retaining and recruiting personnel have to be found. Investigates the importance of various job characteristics for retaining and recruiting employees and presents the results from a survey among employees of a Dutch hospital experiencing a tight labour market. Job characteristics other than wages, such as labour relations and work content, were found to play a major role in individuals' choices to resign or stay.

Considers a variety of pressures, both internal and external to the National Health Service, which in recent years have ostensibly increased the importance of sound workforce planning initiatives. These include, among others: skill shortage; the drive towards cost-efficiency and effectiveness; an altered philosophy of care through new technology; the development of competence-based training initiatives; nationwide demographic changes; and the need to develop identifiable skill shortages. Presents reprofiling (skills alignment with organizational needs) and skill mix and distribution as useful approaches to workforce planning and concludes with a brief consideration of implications for planners of professional boundaries and changed educational priorities for health service personnel.
