Date confirmed: 5th March 2019 – Open Workshop for Employers: How to fully support employees affected by cancer at work

Date posted: July 30, 2018

Every two minutes someone is diagnosed with cancer so it’s highly likely that an employee in your organisation will be affected in the near future. It’s easy to think “I’ll wait until it happens” but if it did happen tomorrow how prepared would you feel?

Following the success of our first half-day Open Workshop for Employers in July 2018, we are pleased to confirm our next Workshop will take place in London on Tuesday 5th March 2019.

The Workshop is designed to equip line managers, team leaders, HR and Occupational Health professionals to:

– Feel confident in handling communication and difficult conversations sensitively and with empathy
– Fully understand how best to support an employee from diagnosis through to a return to work and beyond
– Be aware of legal requirements and how to consider workplace adjustments
– Consider a framework to develop a cancer strategy, policy and action plan

Timing: 10.00 am – 1.00 pm (registration and coffee at 9.30 am)

Venue: Schroders, 1 London Wall Place, London, EC2Y 5AU

Cost: £250 (+ VAT) or £175 (+ VAT) for charities/social enterprises (Early bird rate of £225 (+ VAT) applies if booked by 31st December 2018)

Further details on the Workshop, and how to register, can be found here.  Terms and Conditions can be found here.

What participants took home from our July Workshop:

“I realise I need to take time to think before I speak and be flexible at looking at alternative reasonable adjustments on a case to case basis.”

“The workshop increased my awareness of how to support a colleague with cancer and the practical ways to support them.”
