09 Jul Employee Assistant Program
It is a well-recognized fact that in any industry at any given time, up to 18% of the total workforce may have serious personal problems; one of the main problems being Chemical Dependency. This has adverse affects on the individual’s performance at work and further leads to degeneration of his entire life. Chemical Dependency is a progressive disease, and like other diseases the earlier it is identified and treated, the greater are the chance of recovery. Victims of the disease may fail to recognize its pressure or are terrified of the consequences of total abstinence. When a client’s indulgence affects his / her job performance or they are unable to restrict the use of their chemical, treatment becomes necessary. Industrial realities are an effective motivational tool. Any threat to ones job security amounts to crisis. Given a chance to improve performance and resolve crisis’, employees are more apt to take up the assistance offered.
