Convene To Screen

Check4Cancer's medical director Professor Gordon Wishart sets out the case for putting policies in place for dealing with cancer before it rears its ugly head among your workplace.

Check4Cancer has published a report entitled Cancer in the workplace: what does it mean for HR? Drawing on a specially commissioned survey of over 100 HR professionals, it provides first-hand insight into how cancer and its impact on the workplace is being percieved by businesses and suggests ways to tackle this growing issue.

Why comission this report now? The rise in the number of people with cancer is a growing issue for employers that will not simply go away. Each year, around 325,000 people area diagnosed with cancer and 160,000 people die from it. More than 100,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer in the UK each year, and there are more than 700,000 people of working age living with the disease.
