Did you know?
1 in 9 people in the workplace are carers – that’s 11% of all employees. Many carers enjoy being at work as it give them time to be themselves and feel like a valuable and productive member of a team. at home when they are looking after the needs of others it is easy to feel unimportant and invisible.
Being a carer can impact greatly on those who are also employed in full and part time positions
– More days of sick due to stress and mental and physical exhaustion
– This can lead to less productivity at work
– Loss of confidence in the workplace as productivity levels decline
– Lead to long-term mental and physical health problems
Eventually this causes employees to have to reduce their hours, take a less stressful job or even have to quit work altogether
