MyLiferaft Supports Working Carers
MyLiferaft offers an affordable solution for employers to actively support and recognise working carers in their workforce. MyLiferaft can also benefit all employees helping them become more engaged and active in managing their own health and well-being.
- 1 in 7 employees are likely to have caring responsibilities at home. This is growing as the elderly population rises and many will require care from a relative.
- More than 1 in 5 carers will either reduce their working hours or stop working altogether, because they are juggling work and care.
- Many who leave their jobs will be people who are trained, valuable employees. It costs circa £30,000 to replace an employee.
- Carers have a higher than average rate of both mental and physical illness as a result of caring
