HOSPITALITY HEALTH & WELLNESS CHARTER

About Hospitality Health

It is a Scottish charity, formed in August of 2018 to support staff in the amazing world of Hospitality. It is clear that for several years the Industry has become more stressful for an extremely hard working management and staff.

The trustees decided it was time to act and help those who are in need of support, by providing wellbeing advice and signposting organisations that can help. We hope we can make a difference, even to a few individuals.

When the charity was launched we also launched the Wellness Charter, a certificate that recognises a business is doing the right thing for the staff. It includes recognising the following

  1. Provide non-judgemental and proactive support to individual staff who experience mental ill health.
  2. Not make assumptions that a person with a mental health condition will be more vulnerable to workplace stress or take more time off than any other employee or job applicant.
  3. Show a positive and enabling attitude to all employees and job applicants with a mental health condition. This will include positive statements in local recruitment literature.
  4. Ensure all line managers have access to information and training about managing mental health in the workplace.
  5. Offer staff access to an Employee Assistance Programme.
  6. Support the ambition to pay the living wage and end low pay.
  7. Ensure that all staff involved in recruitment and selection are briefed on mental health conditions and The Equality Act 2010 and given appropriate interview skills.

If your business is interested in finding out how they can be awarded the charter, please contact us using the ‘enquiries’ email link at the top of the page.
