You can take simple and effective action to enable carers to balance their paid work with their caring responsibilities and, as a result, retain the services of these valued employees. Carer-friendly policies can also help you tap into a new source of unrealised potential - the 1.5 million carers of working age in the UK who are not currently working.
Employers for Carers has produced a video, 'Juggling Work and Care', which features managers and working carers discussing practical solutions to combining work and care and employers explaining how their business has benefited. It can be used as a training resource and/or to promote carers' support. Please visit our Multimedia section to watch the video.
You can join us and benefit from the dedicated resources, networking opportunities, training and consultancy services that Employers for Carers provide to its member organisations.
