What's the impact of cancer in the workplace?

In the UK, an estimated 375,000 people discover they have cancer every year, which is about 1,000 cases a day1. It means there’s every chance your employees or their families will be directly affected at some point.

Businesses may want to consider the impact of cancer across all stages; prioritising prevention, support for those having treatment or recovering, as well as equipping teams with the knowledge to a support co-worker during this time.  

Workplace support for employees with cancer

With our help, you can be ready to support your employees practically and sensitively, including making sure managers understand any adjustments the person may need. Combining our healthcare plans, wellbeing services, occupational health services and employee assistance programmes you’ll be able to build holistic support for your people and business with the complexities of cancer in mind2.
