Recruiter Magazine - WORLD CANCER DAY 2019: HOW TO SUPPORT AND TREAT STAFF WITH CANCER BETTER

By Katharine Moxham 4 February 2019.

Katharine Moxham explores how employers and recruiters can play their part in reducing the impact of cancer.

The theme of World Cancer Day (4 February) this year is very much around who we all are and what we’re going to do to reduce the impact of cancer.

While a cancer diagnosis can strike fear into the heart of anyone, employers can also be completely blindsided when hearing that a member of staff has cancer, and be totally unsure how to support them best.

There are cases of employees with cancer being treated very poorly by their company, and this may be because the employer panics, doesn’t know what to do, makes an assumption that the employee won’t be able to work, and/or doesn’t know how to get advice or support. Employees may not be given the opportunity to continue working and this can be detrimental to their recovery.
