Iarnród Éireann joins Caring Employers programme

Iarnród Éireann has today announced a new partnership with Family Carers Ireland to provide supports and resources for colleagues nationwide who are balancing their jobs with caring responsibilities at home.

The national charity supporting Ireland’s 500,000 + family carers has developed its ‘Caring Employers’ programme to provide practical supports and services shaped to work with the needs of businesses and employees. Iarnród Éireann is collaborating with Family Carers Ireland to create a bespoke programme of activity and policies to ensure that members of its team, who are also in caring roles at home, are recognised, supported, and accommodated in their professional career.

Jim Meade, CEO of Iarnród Éireann welcomed the announcement:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Family Carers Ireland because we are committed to supporting our colleagues with caring responsibilities. No one working in Iarnród Éireann should feel like they are on their own when trying to balance their day-to-day workload with providing care to a loved one. It is important to us that we continue to understand the needs of our employees and provide guidance to supports available to them.”

Iarnród Éireann joins Irish Life, Bank of Ireland, EA Gaming and Roche as members of the Caring Employers programme.
