Alcohol and the Workplace: Opening the conversation
The negative effects of alcohol are often felt in the workplace. Reduced productivity, poor punctuality and substandard quality of work are just a few of the noticeable impacts that problematic drinking can have on an employee, but these are are often overlooked.
However, this means that the workplace can also be a good place to help people identify alcohol problems and overcome them.
In this session our experts will provide your team with an overview of why we need to address alcohol in the workplace and the impact it can have on a persons work, their colleagues, and the organisation as a whole.
Then your team will learn more about spotting the signs of alcohol harm, understand how and why many managers, mentors and wellbeing networks struggle to have these conversations, and how to make the alcohol part of the wellbeing agenda through culture shift and training.
