In the Aviva #podcast, hear about the pressures and challenges involved in being part of the #SandwichGeneration, those simultaneously caring for their children and their ageing parents. Aviva are proud to have introduced a new carer policy, to give these people more flexibility at this stage of their life. Jonathan Briggs, Group Head Talent Acquisition at Aviva says "When people hear ‘caring’, they often automatically think about older relatives, but caring requirements are broad and varied. There are lots of workers who have responsibilities for children with additional needs – for example, children on the autistic spectrum – and there are people supporting individuals with mental health conditions. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to caring, so businesses need to be ready to adapt accordingly."
