Description:

The guidance is for those who have a direct or indirect role in, and responsibility for, promoting mental wellbeing at work. This includes all employers and their representatives, irrespective of the size of the business or organisation and whether they are in the public, private, or voluntary sectors. It may also be of interest to professionals working in human resources or occupational health, employees, trade unions representatives and members of the public. It focuses on interventions to promote mental wellbeing through productive and healthy working conditions. Mental wellbeing at work is determined by the interaction between the working environment, the nature of the work and the individual. The five recommendations cover: strategy, assessing opportunities for promoting mental wellbeing and managing risk, flexible working, the role of line managers, and supporting micro, small and medium-sized businesses. They include: - Promoting a culture of participation, equality and fairness that is based on open communication and inclusion. - Using frameworks such as Health and Safety Executive management standards for work-related stress to promote and protect employee mental wellbeing. - Consider particular models of flexible working that recognise the distinct characteristics of micro, small and medium-sized businesses and organisations.
