TIME TO CHANGE
We have signed the Time to Change pledge.
By supporting this social movement we promise to change the way we think about mental health at work.

WHAT IS THE TIME TO CHANGE EMPLOYER PLEDGE?
Carnell have demonstrated a commitment to change how we think and act about Mental Health in the workplace and make sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported. By signing the Pledge we have joined a growing movement of more than 800 employers in England across all sectors.
WHY DID WE SIGN?
Mental health is an issue our organisation can’t afford to ignore:
• 1 in 4 British workers are affected by conditions like anxiety, depression and stress every year.
• Mental ill-health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year.
• 95% of employees calling in sick with stress gave a different reason.
Looking after the mental health of your employees makes business sense: tackling stigma can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, presenteeism levels, staff wellbeing and productivity, and retention. Since signing the Employer Pledge, 95% of employers said it had a positive impact on their organisation.
