Addiction is a complex issue that can have a profound impact on workplace productivity and morale. Unfortunately, many companies are ill-equipped to handle employee addiction effectively. This can result in serious consequences for the business, from decreased productivity to increased absenteeism and even legal liability.
If you suspect that an employee is struggling with addiction, it’s important to act quickly and effectively. One resource to turn to for help is Recovery Direct’s addiction counsellors, who offer free assistance on how to deal with the situation equitably. With their guidance, you can develop a plan of action that not only supports the employee’s recovery but also minimizes the impact on the business.
Recovery Direct’s addiction counsellors can help you understand the signs of addiction and develop strategies for addressing the issue. They can also provide education and resources for managers and employees, as well as referrals to professional treatment services. By taking a proactive approach to employee addiction, you can create a healthier, more productive workplace for everyone.
We will do a full assessment free of charge and facilitate any addiction related disciplinary process that may assist the company and employee to reach a fair resolution.
