Are you a “Mindful Employer”?

Mindful Employer logoIn my previous blog I talked about the importance of employers looking after their employees’ mental health. This time I continue that theme with exploring becoming a “Mindful Employer®”.

Mindful Employer is a registered trade mark of Devon Partnership NHS Trust. It is a voluntary commitment to a Charter developed by employers for employers, and is about good practice, helping employers adapt their own policies, structure and culture for the long-term benefit of all staff.

Demonstrating that you are a Mindful Employer:

  • Shows employees and others that you are a good employer
  • Expresses corporate social responsibility
  • Reduces recruitment and training costs
  • Helps towards complying with legislation (e.g. Equality Act 2010, health and Safety Acts etc)
  • Reduces sickness levels
  • Enhances customer service
  • Improves productivity
  • Makes your company more attractive to people with mental health issues and others
  • Helps retain staff who may have experienced discrimination in the past
  • Makes a healthier workplace

Signing up to the charter gives you the following benefits:

  • Shows your company is working towards putting its principles in to practice
  • Will be supported by other MINDFUL EMPLOYERS and supporting organisations
  • Receives a personalised Charter showing the company name and logo
  • Is able to use the MINDFUL EMPLOYER logo

For more information on the Charter and becoming a Mindful Employer, please see here.
