2.00pm - 4.00pm

Stakeholder Managers support the Time to Change initiatives within our upper tier local authorities.  Time to Change is a growing social movement working to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems.

Time to Change aims to create a culture where everyone feels comfortable to say how they feel and be confident that they’ll be supported in exactly the same way as they would if they broke a leg or sprained an ankle:  Time to Change.

 

What is the Time to Change Employer Pledge?

When an organisation signs the Employer Pledge they demonstrate their commitment to change how people think and act about mental health in the workplace and make sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported.

By signing the Pledge they join a growing movement of almost 1,000 employers in England across all sectors from FTSE 100 companies and leading retailers to government departments and local authorities.

 

Why sign?

Mental health is an issue organisations cannot ignore

  • 1 in 4 British workers are affected by conditions like anxiety, depression and stress every year
  • Mental ill-health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year
  • 95% of employees calling in sick with stress give a different reason.

Looking after the mental health of employees makes business sense: tackling stigma can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, staff wellbeing, productivity and retention. Since signing the Employer Pledge, 95% of employers said it had a positive impact on their organisation.

Employers also benefit from the FREE, ongoing specialised support and training offered through Time to Change.

 

What support is there for employers considering making a pledge?

To find out more about the Employer Pledge, you are invited to the above workshop session that will include:

  • A presentation giving more information

  • Examples of workplace action plans in development and an opportunity to start drafting your own workplace action plan.
