H3. Health & Wellbeing Report
21 November, 2013
Submitted: 18 May, 2015
Please describe how you report on the health and wellbeing of your employees, including annual sickness rates
The Department monitors health and wellbeing through monthly reports on levels of sickness absence, staff surveys and staff turnover and vacancies. This is discussed on a regular basis at the departmental People Committee, highlighting any concerns or emerging themes. Sickness absence levels are discussed regularly by senior leaders and decisions taken regarding any mitigating actions which may need to be put in place. The Government Legal Department’s (GLD) annual staff engagement survey also enables monitoring of progress in a number of key areas that link to health and wellbeing such as management, fair treatment and work-life balance.
GLD’s sickness absence rate has been steadily reducing over the last few years and currently stands at an average rate (per employee) of just over five annual working days lost through sickness absence.
