Re-Launch of the Scottish Business Pledge Website
Employers are encouraged to look at the recently re-launched Scottish Business Pledge website where Carer Positive is highlighted within the Workforce Engagement Pledge element: https://scottishbusinesspledge.scot/pledge-elements/workforce-engagement/
This states that….“The world of work is changing fast and the social demands and lives of millions of employees are changing with it. Creating an engaging workplace that supports employees and family life isn’t just the right thing to do, it is economically advantageous. Flexible working can help to deliver business success by enabling working families to have a good balance between work and family life. Systems or practices which support the health and well-being of your employees, or foster a family-friendly workplace, including policies such as flexible working or the Carer Positive initiative that provides free support and advice to employers who are seeking to implement carer-friendly policies”.
The Scottish Business Pledge is a values-led partnership between Government and business that is based on boosting productivity and competitiveness through fairness, equality and sustainable employment.
Each pledge from a Scottish business contributes towards a forward-thinking organisation and a stronger Scotland.
