- Comments from Town’s HR Manager Zoe Shackleton
Huddersfield Town are delighted to have become a Mindful Employer having signed the Charter for Employers Positive about Mental Health.
The scheme involves making a commitment to supporting staff with their mental health and wellbeing, along with creating a supportive and open culture in the workplace.
Signing the Charter reflects the values of the Club and ensures that we are continuing to provide the best possible working environment for employees, so that we can collectively work together to become stronger.
In order to carry out our role as a Mindful Employer, we will aspire to, amongst other things, provide a non-judgemental and supportive workplace environment for employees.
As well as that, we have made an on-going commitment to be positive and enabling towards all employees and job applicants with a mental health condition, to support line managers at managing mental health in the workplace and to ensure that we are fair in the recruitment of new staff in accordance with the Equality Act (2010).
Huddersfield Town’s HR Manager Zoe Shackleton commented:
“As an employer we recognise that in the UK, people experiencing mental health issues continue to report stigma and discrimination at work.
“Having signed the charter to become a Mindful Employer, we, as a football club, want to make a commitment towards providing a supportive and open culture where employees can openly express themselves about their mental health and wellbeing.
“We hope that we can continue to create an environment in which our employees are supportive of each other and are therefore able to come together to work to the best of their abilities.”
