It is estimated that 1 in 7 in the workforce are carers of someone elderly, disabled or seriously ill. It’s vital to provide support to your employees with these types of caring responsibilities in order to retain them in your business and ensure their engagement, productivity, and wellbeing.
This toolkit provides a guide to the tried and tested measures and policies employers can introduce to support the carers in their workforce in whom they have invested significant time and money. In addition, the toolkit provides a model policy, tips for line managers on how to support the carers in their team and factsheets for carers themselves on sources of help.
