When you are recruiting or seeking to retain an employee who has M.E. you are likely to have some questions about how you can support and enable them to be the most productive employee that they can be.

M.E. is a complex and fluctuating condition. While some living with the condition are simply too ill to work, others can manage their symptoms effectively enough to successfully work as dedicated, loyal and talented employees.

Bar far the best predictor of a good outcome for all concerned is the use of a collaborative approach that focuses on solutions rather than problems and makes use of all available expertise. Using this approach, we have seen many cases in which employers have successfully retained valued employees, saved significant associated costs and gained knowledge which will serve them well in future such situations.

For more information, support and advice, please download our booklet, An employer's guide to M.E., and signpost your employee to our M.E. and work resource.
