Once you have signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge, you will have access to our Employers Accelerator Programme which includes:

  • Invitations to a series of Masterclasses with sessions run by employers and lots of examples of good practice (details below)

  • Support and introductions to enable you to build connections with other employers

  • Briefings on our key campaigns to help you roll them out in your workplace

  • Support and guidance from the Employers Team throughout the year on request

Our Masterclasses are available for organisations who have signed the pledge. Priority is given to organisations who have just joined the programme to accelerate their progress but wherever possible we aim to extend this support to any pledged organisations who need to readdress the campaign in their workplace.

Understanding where mental health fits within your organisation's policies and what your legal requirements are, is essential to success. A clear mental health policy establishes a framework for everyone to work within and shows new recruits and current employees that your organisation takes their mental wellbeing seriously.

Sector Specific Masterclasses

We see the value of gathering organisations who work within a similar sector together to offer a more bespoke support. These sessions will cover how to use the Time to Change Campaign effectively within your organisation and your sector to develop a cultural shift around talking about mental health problems in the workplace. We see it as being important that these sessions have a mix of organisations. Employers who may be at the beginning of opening up about mental health in the workplace will join those who have already implemented some great initiatives. These sessions will be open to employers who have already signed the pledge and to those who have not.
