Changing the conversation about work and cancer

NEW: 4th February 2020 – Open Workshop For Employers: How to fully support employees affected by cancer at work

Changing the conversation about work and cancer

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 October event, we are pleased to confirm we will be running another Workshop in London on Tuesday 4th February 2020.

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
