Karen Powell, Chair of our Carer’s Network says:
“On Carer’s Rights Day, we’re absolutely thrilled to be recognised as an Accomplished Carer Confident employer. IPO is very deserving of this recognition and it is indicative of the inclusive workplace that makes IPO a brilliant place to work. I find being a carer very tough at times, but working in the IPO with all the flexibilities that brings, make things easier to deal with.”
Louise Wring, HR Specialist says:
“Our Carer’s Network are at the forefront of change in the IPO and it’s a real testament to their passion and dedication that we’ve been recognised as an Accomplished Carer Confident Employer. Using the Carer’s network, we’ve been able to consult with those who are living through some of the difficulties faced by carers to make our policies more inclusive, building an environment in the IPO where everyone’s experience is valid and respected. Our fantastic flexible working policies, along with our Carer’s passport have really made a difference this year to our carers who have particularly struggled during the pandemic. We aim to help everyone achieve a satisfactory work life dynamic, and are looking forward to building on what we have to make the IPO a brilliant place to work.”
