Webinar Description

Life can be hard and fraught with big problems. The reality is that you have employees who face problems that are so big or seem so insurmountable that those problems cannot help coming into the workplace and affecting their job performance, workplace relationships and even their and their coworker’s safety. When a person feels as if they are struggling, they cannot bring their best self to work every day. You have at least some employees facing these situations and working for you.The problems may be illness or inadequate income in a low paying job.

Today, we look to the workplace to supply many of the same relationships and support system roles that community and families played in the past.

These days handing out an Employer Assistance Plan brochure (EAP), while a good start, does not meet most employee expectations. Your business may not even have an EAP.

HR professionals often find themselves expected to assist with an employee’s personal problems.And you will be expected to realistically assess your workgroups and find innovative and proactive solutions. For example, jobs pay according to the labor market. If your jobs are not highly compensated, your company has to assess the implementation of systems to help a workforce whose members will likely be struggling with long-term financial problems that arise from low wages.
