Abstract

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has been asked by the Department of Health to develop guidance on management practices to improve the health of employees, with a particular emphasis on the role of line managers and organisational context. The guidance will cover support for managers, their training, and awareness of employee health issues including managing sickness absence, as well as policies and the organisational context.
The Institute for Employment Studies (IES) in partnership with The Work Foundation (TWF) and Lancaster University have been contracted to undertake a series of evidence reviews of relevant effectiveness and qualitative studies and an economic analysis to support the production of this guidance.
This report is the first of these evidence reviews. It covers studies which examine the effectiveness of interventions taken by supervisors that could enhance the wellbeing of the people they manage. Subsequent reviews will focus on the effectiveness of organisational interventions and qualitative research about the workplace factors that facilitate or constrain the ability of line managers to enhance the wellbeing of the people they manage.
