NICE Guideline:Workplace Policy and Management Practices

Post by Waterbaby »

../. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)

http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng13" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

June 2015 - 'Workplace policy and management practices to improve the health and wellbeing of employees"

"This guideline makes recommendations on improving the health and wellbeing of employees, with a particular focus on organisational culture and context, and the role of line managers.

The aim is to:
Promote leadership that supports the health and wellbeing of employees, help line managers to achieve this
Explore the positive and negative effect an organisation’s culture can have on people’s health and wellbeing
Provide a business case and economic modelling for strengthening the role of line managers in ensuring the health and wellbeing of employees.

The guideline is for all managers in all sectors (including directors and board members), employers and employees.
It will also be of interest to those working in:

human resources
learning and development
organisational development
occupational health
trade unions
professional and trade bodies
business organisations
recruitment teams and organisations
education and training
health and safety.

The recommendations should be read in conjunction with existing NICE guidance unless explicitly stated otherwise.

They should be implemented in light of duties set out in the Equality Act 2010."

Thanks Waterbaby, this landed on my desk last week. Quite timely as I have just started a new post within the local NHS Trust and am having to gap analyse against HSG65, can add the requirements of this in too

"This guideline was first published in June 2015

A new committee considered evidence relating specifically to older employees and added new recommendations in March 2016 – it did not review or amend the original recommendations.
New recommendations were made if explicit evidence was found for older people. However, the original recommendations remain applicable to employees of all ages.

Recommendations are marked as:

[new 2016] for new recommendations added about older employees (aged over 50 in paid or unpaid work)

[2015] for original recommendations.

These recommendations support compliance with equality legislation under the Equality Act (2010). This protects employees from discrimination in employment, training and education."
