Supporting carers at work makes business sense. 1 in 9 in your workforce will be caring for someone who is older, disabled or seriously ill. In the current economic climate, it is an important time to retain skilled workers rather than recruiting and retraining new staff.
Slough Carers Support, in partnership with Slough Borough Council, are on a mission to encourage and help the business community increase support for the town’s 12,000+ carers. We want to promote the real and significant benefits of supporting carers in the workplace.
With short presentations from Carers UK and Slough Carers Support as well as input and Q & A with small and large employers such as Right at Home and Centrica and testimonies from working carers, this free event will provide you with the resources and tools you need to take your first steps towards becoming a carer friendly employer and discovering how working with carers could work for you!
For further information, please contact Slough Carers Support by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01753 303428.
Lunch is provided. Booking (for catering purposes) is required, though employers can either just pop by or stay for the whole event.
