Survey of Employees

Posted by jjcadmin on 17 February, 2016

 Keep Talking About Mental Health is our second survey of people working for MINDFUL EMPLOYER Charter signatories. This survey indicates a clear link between the level of awareness of the Charter and the ability to talk about mental health. Two-thirds of employees with a current condition who knew their employer was a signatory were able to talk to the manager about their situation. Like our previous survey (see below) this one also indicates that the most likely response to such disclosure is one where the manager listens, is supportive and is understanding – and not the negative response that is often feared. Other findings among employees was that the most common reason for not talking about mental ill health was the fear it would go against them, yet the least common response by the employer was disciplinary action. The survey also showed that employers can do more to increase awareness of their commitment to the Charter and would benefit from investing in training and liaising more closely with doctors and healthcare professionals.
