Lanarkshire Employers Workshop
You are invited to join us on Wednesday 9th June, from 2.30pm till 4pm for an information and workshop session with Lanarkshire based employers.
This event will bring together organisations from throughout Lanarkshire to discuss and share experiences on how employers can support staff with caring responsibilities. It is being held in partnership between North Lanarkshire Carers Together and Carer Positive.
Carer Positive awarded employers will be amongst those in attendance and able to share their insights into the process of creating a supportive working environment for carers. We would also like as many other local employers as possible to attend, to learn about the challenges faced by working carers, any barriers they face themselves as employers, and what support might be helpful in developing their own supportive working environments.
As you will be aware, the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted even more the vital job that unpaid carers undertake in caring for family members and friends. For those carers also juggling their caring role with paid employment, this can often be particularly challenging, and it is important that employers provide the right support to enable employees to manage both work and caring roles. The Carer Positive scheme supports organisations to do this, and awards recognition to organisations with good workplace support in place.
