Developed, led and supported by employers, MINDFUL EMPLOYER provides businesses and organisations with easier access to information and support for staff who experience stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions.
Lincoln College are among the hundreds of employers who are signatories to the Charter for Employers who are Positive About Mental Health.
The Charter is just one part of the MINDFUL EMPLOYER® initiative and over 1,800 employers have been signatories at some point since the initiative began in 2004. The Charter is a voluntary commitment. It's not an accreditation, award or a set of quality standards but is about working towards the principles of it – signing up is a step along a journey not the end of it.
Mindful Employer Charter
The Mindful Employer Charter, is for employers who are positive about mental health.
As an employer we recognise that:
• People who have mental health issues may have experienced discrimination in recruitment and selection procedures. This may discourage them from seeking employment
• Whilst some people will acknowledge their experience of mental health issues in a frank and open way, others fear that stigma will jeopardise their chances of getting a job
• Given appropriate support, the vast majority of people who have experienced mental ill health continue to work successfully as do many with ongoing issues.
As an employer we aim to:
• Show a positive and enabling attitude to employees and job applicants with mental health issues. This will include positive statements in local recruitment literature
• Ensure that all staff involved in recruitment and selection are briefed on mental health issues and The Equality Act 2010, and given appropriate interview skills
• Make it clear in any recruitment or occupational health check that people who have experienced mental health issues will not be discriminated against and that disclosure of a mental health problem will enable both employee and employer to assess and provide the right level of support or adjustment
• Not make assumptions that a person with a mental health problem will be more vulnerable to workplace stress or take more time off than any other employee or job applicant
• Provide non-judgemental and proactive support to individual staff who experience mental health issues
• Ensure all line managers have information and training about managing mental health in the workplace.
