Mars is a leader in workplace welfare and we are committed to supporting our associates (employees) with chronic conditions in the workplace wherever possible. This forms part of our internal responsibility principle.
Best use is made of our occupational and private health services to assist associates in returning to a job that is within their physical and psychological capabilities at the earliest mutual opportunity, benefiting both the associate and the business. This includes supporting a return to full duties through rehabilitation or modified working, extra support in the workplace, or adjustments and redeployment where the associateâ€™s ongoing medical condition will prevent the associate from performing their current role. Where further adjustments are required and associates are unable to return to their normal roles, but where further adjustments are required Mars also supports associates with a range of solutions, including alternative roles that better accommodate their medical condition. All of our site associates have access to an occupational health manager where they are able to discuss in confidence any work related concerns that they may have and are also able to see our funded on site physiotherapist, or be referred privately to an off-site provider if preferred.
We have provided a range modified work to support our associates with a range of conditions, including mental health, diabetes, cardiac disorders, dyslexia, epilepsy, chronic fatigue and other chronic conditions with phased hours, flexible working, modified roles and individual and tailored support. We also support associates by providing modifications to company cars to support musculoskeletal conditions and providing adjustable desks.
