This new award recognises north east employers who go the extra mile in their support for employees who have been diagnosed with cancer or are caring for someone with cancer.
In the UK, more than 112,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer each year. There are currently more than 750,000 people of working age living with a cancer diagnosis and many will continue to work after, or even through, their treatment. It is also estimated that there are 700,000 employees caring for someone with cancer in the UK (Macmillan Cancer Support).
Cancer has an inevitable impact on the business, the employees and their families, friends and colleagues. A supportive workplace can make a big difference.
