MKCPP member runs new workshop on cancer in the workplace, June 21st 2017
Research shows that far too few employers and managers – even HR managers – understand how to deal with staff who contract cancer.
And consequently employed cancer patients may inadvertently receive less than appropriate treatment in the workplace during the course of their treatment and recovery.
This is why MKCPP member Deborah James of James HR and fellow cancer survivor Maggie Newton of Red Clematis Coaching have announced the next in their popular series of workshops on cancer in the workplace.
The venue is Northampton, conveniently located in the south Midlands of England.
