Please tune in to CAREWELL Conversations, a podcast on the importance of supporting those balancing paid work with family caring, produced by the #CAREWELL_Project.
In our eighth episode “The win-win of retaining working family carers in paid employment” Professor David Grayson, Emeritus professor of Corporate Responsibility, Cranfield School of Management and Chair of the International Pan-Disability Charity: Leonard Cheshire, is joined in conversation by Ms. Catherine Cox, Head of Communications at Family Carers Ireland. David is the author of the book “Take Care-how to be a great employer for working carers” and he discusses with Catherine some of the advice and strategy’s for employers outlined in his book. David was inspired to write the book by his own experience as a working family carer and his professional and academic experience in the area of corporate responsibility.

“I think we need societies to recognise that caring is just a fundamental part of what it means to be a human and then I think employers will see this as an integral part of being a great place to work, to be able to support their working carers.”
