1 in 7 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.
We are conducting new research in a bid to prevent a drain of workforce experience and skill through increased demand for caring for loved ones. If you are working and caring for someone with dementia or are an employer, take part in our short on-line survey.
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 March 2014.
