This week you can spot us in the new edition of Business Scotland Magazine with an article about the importance of carer support as we look towards the future of working.

We are still in the grip of the Covid-19 pandemic but with the vaccine beginning to be rolled out across the country, employers and workers alike are starting to think about the future of working in Scotland.

Caring already affects a huge number of individuals who are also in employment but as our population continues to live and work for longer, having employees with caring responsibilities will increasingly become the norm. This is why putting support in place for staff members with caring responsibilities is a vital step to take now, in order to help future-proof your organisation.
