The Government has published a framework to support employers to voluntarily report on disability, mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. The framework is aimed at large employers with over 250 employees but can also be used to support smaller employers who are keen to drive greater transparency in their organisation or industry. For disability reporting it is suggested that employers: (A) provide a narrative to explain the activities in the organisation in relation to the recruitment and retention of disabled people; and (B) report the percentage of individuals within the organisation who consider themselves to be disabled or have a long term physical or mental health condition. Suggestions are also made about how to report mental health and wellbeing information.
