Description

Whether you are in the very early stages of recognising carers in your workforce, or looking to refresh some of your policies and strategies, this event is a must for Carers Week 2019

“Proactively supporting our carer colleagues has saved our business £3.1m in absenteeism, presenteeism and retention. Like any societal challenge, ignoring the problem is often a more expensive approach than investing time to find a workable solution.” Dave Kirwan, Centrica, February 2019

One in nine of the Scottish workforce comprises of people active in an unpaid caring role in addition to their employment. What’s more, carers can be found in businesses on any branch of the organisational structure, from the coalface to the boardroom.

  • Support employers to implement carer policies
  • Inspire creative employee communication strategies
