When Money Worries Take Over – What UK Top Employers are Doing to Support Employees With the Cost Of Living Crisis
By Androna Benadé, Regional Manager UK & Ireland, Top Employers Institute
Every year we look back and think ‘that was the hardest one yet’, but 2022 has brought about its own unique set of challenges. The economic impact of political turmoil both home and abroad is having a very real impact on the pockets of our employees, and the cost-of-living crisis is now firmly embedded.
In a landscape where people are fearful of turning on their heating, struggling to afford their commuting costs, cutti...
Dear Boris: Putting Calories On Restaurant Menus Is A Terrible Idea
Words by Francesca Baker, 33, from Kent
When I saw that calorie labels are set to be introduced in restaurants as part of the government's new obesity plan, my heart did a little skip of delight. But then my rational side kicked in, and I felt sick.
Why such complicated feelings towards something that's designed to promote healthy eating?
The answer is that I have anorexia nervosa and have done for 15 years. Since the age of 18 I've been perpetually in recovery, trying hard to fight an illnes...

Tech giants and the concern over privacy
After Apple’s latest product announced earlier this year, concerns have been raised and are spreading online regarding what it means for the privacy of its users. Privacy around new technologies and the control we may be handing over to tech giants has been a hot topic recently, and Apple’s new feature is decidedly not dousing the fire.

'Learning together’: reconceiving home care in England
We often hear that the UK’s health and social care system is in crisis. People deserve to be cared for properly and with dignity, we say. Yet our care system is not currently organised to enable the best possible outcomes for those who need it most. The reasons for this are varied, but one critical barrier is the rigid commissioning guidelines that are based on a ‘time and task’ model and often don’t allow for the bespoke, human care we know that families and home carers wa...

What an 11-Year Age Gap Has Taught Me About Sisterhood
“No one expects you to hang out with each other. That’s why it’s even more special that we choose to.”
I love my little sister Tonia. She is the best person I know. These days she’s not so little, at the grand age of 22, but that still means I am 50% older than her. There are 11 years between us (I’m 33) but we are super close. Do I wish we were closer in years so we had similar friendship groups and current experiences? No, I don’t think I do, because an 11 year age gap has taught me a lot a...
