1 in 9 in your workforce will be caring for someone who is ill, frail or has a disability. In the current economic climate it is an important time to retain skilled workers rather than recruiting and retraining new staff.
Working with embrace-learning, Carers UK and EfC launch new e-learning courses designed to support carers and their line managers; these courses will deliver our expertise directly to your PC/laptop, giving your employees direct access to on-line training.
We produce a wide range of resources including practical guides, policy briefings, research, factsheets, toolkits and sample HR policies. Our publications can also be purchased by non-members and are available to download in the resources section for members.
Employers Supporting Working Carers is a new membership hub for employers, large and small, across Oxfordshire. It is run by Oxfordshire County Council with support from EfC and Carers UK.
Our regular members' networking events give members the opportunity to share good practice and discuss any challenges or opportunities in an informal setting. Our next event will be in early Spring 2015.
