‘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.

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.
