Our absence policy contains information for employees and managers on supporting employees with long term conditions. Managers also have access to a guide setting out how they can consider making reasonable adjustments to employees roles/working conditions to support them in the workplace.All employees and their immediate families have access to our confidential employee assistance programme, operated by AXA ICAS, where they can access support, advice and guidance on working with chronic conditions, amongst other personal issues.We have developed an employee-focussed guide to working with chronic conditions, to sit alongside the other policies outlined above.All HR policies and procedures, and details of our EAP, can be accessed on our intranet. Managers, HR managers and trade union representatives also have access to these should employees require further assistance.
