Supporting Employee Success: A tool to plan accommodations

This guidance booklet, developed in the United States by a review of literature and feedback from the occupational health community, helps the reader to plan workplace tasks and accommodations for employees with mental health issues. The aim of the toolkit is to help understand work related triggers for the individual, help to plan accommodations in a supportive manner to encourage employee success at work and facilitate their well-being whilst meeting the requirements for a safe and productive workplace. It also suggests actions for preventative approaches, introducing these steps to the entire workforce before they require it to help reduce the stigma faced by returning employees.

Guide for Human Resource Professionals - What can you do to help an employee returning to work?

Evidence-based guidance developed using the IGLOo (individual, group, leader, organisational resources) framework to support returning employees, and those that work with them, following a period of absence due to mental ill-health. The guidance draws from the latest evidence to outline what works, and what does not, when it comes to helping someone back to work. The guide also provides a useful checklist to help you see what you can do to help your employee build their IGLOo. Mirrored guides for colleagues, employees and line managers are available to ensure that everyone has the same information.
