1 in 2 people will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. Managers and HR professionals will encounter employees who require support either in managing their own care needs or the care needs of family / friends. By creating a culture of wellbeing and flexibility, employers can ensure that they retain key staff and provide assistance to those who need it most. A culture of openness can assist employees in seeking early support but also provide managers with a toolkit for engaging in these difficult conversations.
