Many employers recognise the importance of retaining skilled staff rather than spending money in recruitment.
They offer flexible working policies and try to create a working environment that contributes to positive health and wellbeing.
For carers in employment, having a supportive and flexible working environment can make a huge difference to maintaining and progressing career opportunities.
Flexible working can take different forms, including:
- job sharing
- working from home
- working part time
- working shorter days
- working compressed hours, full-time hours but over fewer days
- phased retirement
