Workshop for Employers, 18th July 2018: How to fully support employees affected by cancer at work

Date posted: March 20, 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?

We are running a half day Workshop in London on Wednesday 18th July 2018, 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, 100 Wood Street, EC2V 7ER

Costs: £250 or £175 for charities/social enterprises (Early bird rate of £225 applies if booked by 30th April 2018)

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