Cancer in the workplace workshop & support for HR & line managers
26 January 2021
This virtual workshop is brought to you by Generali UK Employee Benefits in partnership with Form Health, specialists in occupational health and rehabilitation. It’s World Cancer Day on 4 Feb 2021. And statistics show that around one in four (25%)* of people in the UK face poor health or disability after treatment for cancer.
It’s a given that employers should provide support but what is ‘reasonable’? The reality is that support can vary hugely from one company to another.
Lorna Berry, Operations and Clinical Services Manager at Form Health, looks at what better support looks like and provides practical guidance and tools. Learn about:
- The importance of better support and understanding of cancer in the workplace.
- Overview of cancer and the main treatment options.
- Potential symptoms and effects of treatment, both psychological and physical, and how they may impact on return to work and maintaining work.
- How to better support people with managing to maintain, or return to, work.
- Practical guidance and tools for manager and HR when supporting someone with an experience of cancer, whether that is their own or a family member.
