‘Cancer in the Workplace’ HR and line manager training

We developed our ‘Cancer in the Workplace’ workshop with Maggie’s cancer charity. It’s aimed at line managers and HR departments. The workshop has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and understanding to help an employee following a cancer diagnosis.

Unum online workshops

Online modules

Designed for those who can’t attend a workshop, our e-modules allow you to:

  • Pick and choose the sections you want to use
  • Access the information whenever you need it

The ‘on demand’ training and guidance also includes access to practical tools and videos.

Line manager support

You have access to a wealth of information and line manager support through our partnership with LifeWorks.*

LifeWorks is available online, via a Freephone helpline and on a mobile app.

*LifeWorks is a non-contractual benefit which can be withdrawn or changed by Unum at any time. The service does not form part of any Unum insurance policy and there is no additional cost or increase in premium as a result of Unum making this benefit available.
