While more and more people are winning the fight against cancer, they are still having a hard time keeping their jobs or finding new work. Cancer survivors not only deserve a fair chance while applying for jobs but are also able to bring adaptability and perseverance to the workplace in addition to their normal qualifications. To ensure equal opportunities and change perceptions of cancer in the workplace, the social enterprise oPuce and a network of large companies in the Netherlands launched the Talent Connector, which empowers job seekers who have recovered from cancer by connecting them directly to dedicated recruiters.
Tune in for the fourth episode of our Transform Talent Podcast to find out more as we talk to Isabelle Lebrocquy, founder of oPuce, Laurence Maes, Lead Patient Engagement & Advocacy Benelux at Janssen, part of Johnson & Johnson, and Jeffrey van Meerkerk, Director Strategic Relations, Sustainability and CSR at ManpowerGroup. Both Johnson & Johnson and ManpowerGroup are signatories of the Work and Cancer Covenant and have been closely involved in setting up the Talent Connector.
Through engaging interviews with talent industry experts, our new podcast series discusses Covid-19’s global impact on the world of work, focusing on how this health crisis is impacting the return to the workplace, the great skills shift, employee physical and emotional well-being and the importance of building resilience in people and organisations. Our two hosts, Roberta Cucchiaro and Dominika Galusa also talk about the latest technologies and hear from our clients on how to make the Next Normal better for all.
