As many of you know I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2022. My diagnosis was discovered by a routine mammogram as part of the breast screening programme. Without attending this routine screening, my future would be very different.
A number of routine screening appointments are missed and one of the reasons for this is that employees will not ask or can’t afford to take time off from work to attend the screenings.
The JG HR Pledge will get employers to actively support employees to attend breast screening by:
· Giving paid time off to attend routine breast screening appointments.
· Regularly talk about cancer with the support of professionals.
All businesses in the UK can sign up to the JG HR Pledge – it is completely free and you’ll receive a certificate to show you are part of the JG HR Pledge.
Watch #HRFrommyshed for more details and if you want to have a chant or sign up to the JG HR Pledge, please drop me a message via the contact us form or through social media.
Let’s make a difference.
