Businesses are facing a new and growing challenge that impacts on their Productivity and Turnover

I’m talking about the challenges their employees face when they are Working and also have Care Responsibilities for Elderly Relatives or Loved Ones with a Critical Illness. If they feel they can’t cope, they go off sick or consider leaving work.

For the business this can have a huge financial impact, particularly if those employees are experienced and skilled. Productivity will go down. Recruitment costs are high and finding the right replacement can be a challenge. It’s much more cost-effective to keep people in post by actively supporting them.

I can help businesses to do this.

Why might employees who Work and Care be less productive?

They are stretched between Working and Caring.

They’re likely to be very stressed and find it difficult to concentrate at work. They may need to make phone calls whilst at work, taking them away from what they’re doing.

They might need to take time off to sort out Care or hospital provision. They have to sort out managing Care provision, particularly if their relatives don’t live close by. They may be providing Care themselves.

What is the Issue?

The issue that affects us all is we are living longer. This means more people needing to use our Health and Social Care Services than ever before.
