Carer Confident for SMEs

Carer Confident is relevant and appropriate for all organisations, whatever your size and structure, including for small employers. If you are a small, medium size or micro employer, we encourage you to identify and develop your own activities as appropriate to your organisation.

For example, small businesses may not have formal HR functions, policies or processes, but can achieve an open and inclusive workplace environment, and demonstrate positive and supportive behaviours from owners/managers. Small employers are often very good, for example, at flexible working in practice – which benefits employees with caring responsibilities – even if they may not describe it as such.
