NICE have published, “Promoting mental wellbeing through productive and healthy working conditions: guidance for employers”.
Guidance for those who have a direct or indirect role in, and responsibility for, promoting mental wellbeing at work. This includes all employers and their representatives, irrespective of the size of the business or organisation and whether they are in the public, private, or voluntary sectors. It may also be of interest to professionals working in human resources or occupational health, employees, trade union representatives and members of the public.
Interesting comments on flexible working and the role of line managers including, “Managers’ ability to manage teams with flexible working patterns may need to be developed.”
Nomad is increasingly being asked about leadership and management techniques. Managing a dispersed, 21st century mobile workforce certainly requires new skills.
This may be an area Nomad should look to explore further in the future.
