While many investors are increasingly focused on environmental, social and governance, many firms fail to embed it into their core strategy. The reason may be that mixing societal impact with financial success can be a slow burn. Quoted in "Board Agenda" article by Kevin Reed
An ever-increasing skills gap and the need to retain experienced staff means that employers need to take action to support employees with disabilities and working carers. If they don't, then the employees’ physical and mental health can decline, and the pressure to reduce their hours, and quit their jobs increases.
There is a wealth of talent in our organisations waiting to be unlocked with the right support from their employer. In this session Professor David Grayson CBE, Alice Maynard CBE (DBA 2007), Director, Future Inclusion, Geoff McDonald, Former Global VP HR Unilever, International Advocate, Campaigner and Consultant for Mental Health in the Workplace and Co-Founder of Minds@Work, and Madeleine Starr MBE,Director of Business Development and Innovation, Carers UK discussed the benefits for employers in supporting employees with disabilities, mental ill-health and working carers; and how a positive impact can be made by organisations immediately.
