The John Lewis Partnership has joined forces with other UK businesses and mental health charities and non-governmental organisations in the most widespread collaboration of its kind to promote a nationwide commitment on improving mental health care in the workplace.
Developed with the knowledge and expertise of mental health charities, leading employers and trade organisations, the Mental Health at Work Commitment provides a framework for employers who recognise the importance of promoting staff wellbeing. This framework sets out six clear standards based on what best practice has shown is needed to make a difference and better equip employers to create an environment where employees can thrive. These standards build on those published in the independent Government-commissioned Thriving At Work review two years ago.
The Commitment is supported by a one stop shop for resources to help employers get started, share experiences and signpost further areas of support. For more information visit www.mentalhealthatwork.org.uk/commitment
