The following are a few of the most common issues, which can be explored:
In a fast-paced society in which so much value is placed on material possessions, it is sometimes difficult for people to maintain loving, caring relationships. Those closest to us receive all the messages we send – both positive and negative. Making sure we are effectively communicating can be of vital importance. If you have a concern or problem with your spouse, child, family member, friend, or significant other, your Employee Support Services Program may be the place for you to begin sorting out and clearing up these problems.
Changes in personality? Has productivity lessened? Lack of job interest? These and other signals can warn a supervisor an employee needs help. Sometimes people cannot express what is troubling them. Depression can come upon a person suddenly or take a significant amount of time to make itself visible. Supervisors can be aware of this particular problem by noting changes in personality, attitude and behavior as well as job performance.
Problem drinking or substance abuse is becoming a more apparent and talked about problem. One out of every ten people who drinks is an alcoholic. As a supervisor, it is essential you have knowledge about this area as well as how to be most helpful. Counseling can reduce the high social and financial costs of health problems, absenteeism and poor work performance associated with substance abuse.
With the cost of living increasing each year, financial worries are foremost on the minds of many people. “Credit-card-itis” is an illness that affects many people. Spending money we do not really have can sometimes show itself as a major problem. Financial stability is becoming a luxury. Counseling can add insight to financial planning and budgeting. Other issues can emerge as offshoots of money problems.
