Mind committed to stamping out bias in recruitment

Leading mental health charity Mind is demonstrating its support for an inclusive approach to recruitment by signing up to become & lsquo;ClearAssured’.

A powerful catalyst for change, Mind works with around 250,000 people every year and is keen to remove any unconscious bias facing disabled people from its recruitment process, by working with inclusion specialists, The Clear Company.

Matthew Page, head of HR at Mind said: “I am pleased to confirm Mind has committed to undergo the ClearAssured assessment of our recruitment practice and are working towards optimising our inclusive approach towards candidates.”

The announcement follows the news released yesterday, on World Mental Health Day, that England’s most ambitious programme to end mental health stigma and discrimination – Time to Change – is to receive &pound16 million from the department of health and &pound4 million from Comic Relief to continue its work until March 2015.

Mark Boulding, Head of Development at Mind, added: “Time to Change will be working with the Clear Company to help employers treat people with mental health problems fairly and with respect, enhancing the talent, morale and productivity of their workforce”.

Kate Headley, development director at The Clear Company, added: “We’re incredibly proud to be working with Mind and the high profile Time to Change campaign.

“The team at Mind are committed to using the ClearAssured process to help them ensure inclusion and best practice is embedded in their recruitment process, and they bring with them so much knowledge, and it is important we work hard to share that expertise with all of the 850 employers in the Clearkit online community.”
