The government has published a non-binding framework for large employers to report on disability, mental health and well being in their workplaces. This follows a recommendation made by an earlier review into mental health in the workplace (the Stevenson/Farmer review).
The new framework suggests that employers voluntarily report on the action they have taken to recruit and retain disabled employees and support the mental health and well being of their employees.
The government believes that transparency and reporting can support the cultural change required to build a more inclusive society. The framework sets out:
• the benefits of increased transparency in the workplace
• guidance on how data can be collected, and where it can be reported
• links to further support
Although the framework is aimed at employer with 250 or more staff, it can also be used by smaller employers.
The framework sets out more information.
