Our work life now includes our life’s work – caring for a family member with a chronic illness or disease or injury. As managers, how do you make room for both in the workplace? How do you find the words to console an employee in a heartbreaking and heart-wrenching experience that can last years?
Our training helps managers respond appropriately so that employees receive support at their home-away-from-home (the workplace) and so that the workplace continues.
Caregiving impacts the workplace: More than 40 million persons in the U.S. provide care to a family member; six in 10 of these individuals also work. Through our training program, managers and employers communicate effectively with their employees who care to ensure the workplace and family caregivers keep working. (A family caregiver is an individual who cares for a family member, like a spouse or parent, or a friend.)
With our three-hour training program, managers and employers gain an insight into a personal caregiving experience. Because of the insights they gain, these managers and employers can now better manage their workplace when an employee becomes a family caregiver.
The training program objectives are:
1. To educate managers and employers about a caregiving experience and the worries, concerns and stresses a working family caregiver experiences.
2. To provide managers and employers with skills and techniques so effective communication with caregiving employees about their experiences and their work load happens.
3. To help employers and managers become comfortable with emotional discussions with caregiving employees, who are often going through the worst experiences in their lifetime.
4. To ensure managers and employers are prepared for the impact of caregiving experiences on their workplace so the business continues while employees manage caregiving responsibilities
