Lentells sign up to the Mindful Employer initiative

Mindful Employer

 

Lentells have signed up to the Mindful Employer initiative. The initiative is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health at work and provide ongoing support.

 

 

Established in 2004, Mindful Employer is a UK wide initiative run by Devon Partnership NHS Trust. Providing employers with easier access to professional workplace mental health training, information and support, the initative aims to help empower employers to take a lead in supporting the mental wellbeing of their staff. 

 

By signing the charter, Lentells have made a public declaration of our desire to support the mental wellbeing of our staff.

 

Organisations who have signed the charter have agreed to commit to the following values:

  • To provide non-judgemental and proactive support to staff experiencing mental ill-health.
  • To not make assumptions about a person with a mental health condition and their ability to work.
  • To be positive and enabling towards all employees and job applicants with a mental health condition.
  • To support line managers in managing mental health in the workplace.
  • To ensure they are fair in the recruitment of new staff in accordance with the Equality Act (2010).
  • To make it clear that people who have experienced mental ill-health will not be discriminated against, and that disclosure of a mental health condition will enable both the employee and employer to assess and provide the right level of support or adjustment.
