Caring for carers – rising to the challenge


28 September 2018

We take a look at the growing trend of employees taking on caring responsibilities and how this can impact them and your business.

According to Carers UK 1 in 9 employees has a caring role. In fact the charity estimates there are around 2.4m people in the aptly named sandwich generation already, with caring responsibilities for both children and elderly relatives1. So, how can employers recognise and support employees who find themselves in this situation?
In this webinar our experts Dr. Vicky Mason and Naomi Snell explore:

  • The reasons why this is a growing trend
  • The impacts on both the employee and the business
  • How organisations can build robust strategies and policies to provide support for employer an employees
  • The role of Occupational Health
  • Services that can help employees through the care ‘maze’
