Caring and isolation in the workplace – employee survey

22 December 2014

Employers for Carers and Carers UK are conducting a short employee survey about caring and isolation in the workplace. 

This new research survey is now open. If you're a working carer –  or you know someone who is – we'd really appreciate it if you could complete the short online anonymous survey.

While one in nine people in any workplace will be supporting an older, ill or disabled relative partner or friend, caring still remains a relatively hidden issue in the workplace. Many employees either do not recognise themselves in a caring role, know where to turn for help, or feel comfortable about coming forward for support.

The purpose of this short employee survey is to improve our understanding of:

  • how and why carers can often feel lonely or isolated (either at work or at home) even when they may be part of a busy workplace or wider family unit
  • how working carers can best be supported to minimise such isolation including through early advice and information and practical help
  • practical ways in which employers and other parties can help

The survey will be open from now until 28 February 2015 and the results will be published in late March 2015.
