Supporting carers workshop
The Insurance Families Network, in association with the IIL, is offering a practical workshop run by How Do You Do It tailored specifically to the needs of carers within the workplace, placing emphasis on strategies to help carers focus upon their own well-being and tips to help prioritisations and the management of time, resources and energy.
Not enough is currently done to support working carers to succeed at work. Figures for workplace isolation amongst carers are alarming but in an ageing population where working lives are continuing for longer, more and more of us will at some stage in our career find ourselves juggling a career and caring responsibilities. Compounding this is the trend towards people becoming parents later in life, meaning many are caught in the 'sandwich generation' with responsibility for children and older relatives right at the height of their career. This brings a unique set of challenges for both employees and employers.
Working carers form a sizeable and important part of any organisation - there are over 3 million in the UK alone and the unique demands that caring brings have traditionally been played down in the context of workplace support and certainly in comparison to support given to parents.
By the end of this workshop attendees would have gained an insight into:
- Strategies to help carers focus upon their own wellbeing
- Tips to help prioritisation
- The management of time, resources and energy
