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 them to achieve the most in their role.

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 remain in work, either on a full time or part time basis.

By far the best predictor of a good outcome for all concerned is the use of a collaborative approach that keeps communication at the forefront; focusing 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 supported valued employees and gained insight which will inform similar situations in the future, should they arise.

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.
