Event description

Description

Do you have staff in your workforce who are leaving due to their caring role and it is costing you money to replace them? Are you aware of staff in your workforce that are struggling to balance caring and working?

Come along and learn how your business can make some small effective changes to improve the wellbeing of Carers and reduce the need to replace staff and lower sickness levels.

A carer is anyone who supports a family member, partner or friend who needs help due to illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or addiction and cannot cope without their help. The care they provide is unpaid, unlike a professional healthcare worker.

Carers may be struggling in their job and small changes could make all the difference to their workforce. According to an annual survey, compiled by the national organisation Carers UK, 35 per cent of carers have resigned from their job when they became a carer and a further 10 per cent reduced their hours to fit in with their caring duties.

Birmingham businesses are being urged to be more “flexible and supportive”, as figures have shown that more than a third of UK carers have quit work because of their caring role.

During the event, we will be showcasing and celebrating organisations and businesses who are already commited to supporting Carers in their workforce.
