Package 2: Social Problems at Work

The workplace is not immune from problems that occur in wider society. It is therefore important that we are aware of how external problems can affect staff and managers within the workplace and thereby create problems and difficulties that could be costly for both the organisation and the individuals concerned. This package has therefore been developed to help organisations address a range of common problems that impinge on the workplace.

It contains the following five programmes:

  • Alcohol and drugs problems in the workplace
  • Coping with depression
  • Mental health problems in the workplace
  • Recognising child abuse
  • Working with grief

The combination of these five programmes can provide a very helpful basis for addressing what can often be very difficult and demanding problems.
