Good practice

There are a range of things employers can do to enable their working carers to continue to work or attract carers to their workforce...

Many employers, such as the members of Employers for Carers, recognise the absolute benefits of employing people with caring responsibilities, for their business, their people and the wider society in which they work.

Flexibility is often the key and work/life balance policies and practices provide a number of solutions for employees regardless of their need. This section has been developed to help illustrate some of the policies and practices that we as Employers for Carers have identified as beneficial for working carers and have found useful in our own organisations.

I just wanted to say thank you for directing us to the sample carers policy on the website - we have just written our first Carers Policy using this and has saved us a lot of time and research!
