The perspective of domiciliary workers is needed to recruit a high-quality workforce and meet growing demand. An English ethnographic study yielded extensive insights. To structure analysis of the study data, we apply a method developed by political theorists Boltanski and Thévenot (2006) that identifies key variables in different values systems. This ‘orders of worth’ framework is used to map out the distinctive features of the subjective world of home carers. The results can be drawn on to formulate recruitment and retention policies, to design reward strategies or to ensure that training and education opportunities engage effectively with the workforce.
