This thesis addressed the critical issue of retention in the child protection workforce. Key predictors of a workers 'intention to stay' or the 'likelihood of staying' were lifestyle factors and whether a worker had contemplated leaving the organisation. The degree of satisfaction was not in itself predictive of either intentions to stay or the actual 'likelihood of staying'.
