Abstract

Our research highlights the important role that managers and organisations can play by creating supportive working environments that promote social acceptance for employees with depression. By doing so, employees will feel more comfortable in discussing any potential mental health issues early on. Our findings suggest that some responses, such as flexible working hours, may be helpful but are not necessarily adequate, and also emphasise the importance of support and openness of managers in addition to flexible working hours.
