Communicate your substance misuse guidlines
According to the guide Managing drug and alcohol misuse as work A 2007 CIPD survey shows that a significant number of employers had no policies in place regarding drug and alcohol misuse at work. It was further found that even when employers did have policies in place, many didn’t effectively communicate these policies to managers and staff.
Only a third of employers trained managers in how to deal with substance misuse at work, with only a fifth training general employees on policies and procedures.
It’s not enough to just have a good substance misuse policy in place, but to effectively communicate it to your staff as well and ensure they understand the policy and the implications of breaking it.
