For the 1 in 7 in your workforce who are caring for someone who is older, disabled or seriously ill, juggling paid work and caring can present real problems. How would you prioritise between the demands of a busy workload and the urgent need of the person you care for?
Given the stresses and strains that can result from balancing multiple responsibilities inside and outside the workplace, it is unsurprising that 1 in 6 carers give up work or reduce their hours to care. But many of these employees will be your most valuable staff, the 45-64 year-olds at the peak of their careers.
EfC helps you tackle these issues through our innovative platform EfC Digital, consultancy and support programmes.
