Employers and Coronavirus Survey Report

Carer Positive employers were asked in May 2020 to respond to a survey about how they have supported employees who are carers during the coronavirus pandemic.

We understand that employers have had to respond to quickly changing circumstances, with competing priorities and logistical challenges and are therefore very grateful to those who managed to find the time to share some of their experiences.

We also appreciate that many other employers who are not accredited as Carer Positive will have risen to this current challenge in finding new and imaginative ways of working and supporting their staff teams. This report does not suggest that its findingsare representative of all Scottish employers, but it helps highlight some good examples of how organisations have adapted and recognised the particular needs of their employees who are carers.
