Crediton Dairy is delighted to confirm that it has joined several hundred other local and national employers in signing the Mindful Employer Charter.
The Mindful Employer initiative is sponsored by Public Health England (PHE) and the Devon NHS Trust whose key objective is to engage and work with employers to promote positive mental health in the workplace.
Signing up to the charter demonstrates a commitment to creating a supportive and open culture, where colleagues should feel comfortable discussing mental health.
Supporting the charter also demonstrates a commitment to encouraging employees to feel safe in disclosing any mental health conditions, and confident that they will be properly supported.
Along with a commitment to uphold the values of the initiative, Crediton Dairy has also subscribed to Mindful Employer Plus, which is a free confidential staff helpline, open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. All Crediton Dairy staff will be given credit card style cards containing the helpline number, along with a leaflet with further details of the initiative.
Supported by PHE Crediton Dairy will be arranging mental health awareness sessions for all its employees. These sessions will be designed to further raise awareness of mental health in the workplace.
Philip Gater, HR Business Partner said. “We’re delighted to be a part of this initiative, which represents a positive step towards maintaining our staff wellbeing.”
