Throughout the year, Workplace runs a series of one-hour, bite-sized, topical learning sessions for your employees, delivered in your workplace by experts in areas of particular interest to your workforce. We allocate one week in the year, and you choose a day and time that suits. Once confirmed, the expert provider will liaise with you directly. All you need to do is advertise the session and provide a suitable place for it to take place.

15% of our workforce in Northern Ireland are caring for loved ones, family members or friends who are ill, disabled or elderly. Whether you’re a carer, know someone who is or manages a staff member who’s carrying out a caring role, this session will give you a better understanding of the issues carers face, carers’ rights and entitlements and where carers can go to for support. The session will cover an overview of caring in Northern Ireland, the legislation affecting carers, the impact of caring on work and how Carers NI and employers can support carers.
