Workplace stress and substance misuse

paper-pile-1238396-639x850Stress in the workplace is seen all too frequently, and sometimes employees turn to illegal and legal substances to help them cope under the pressure. Managing stress effectively in the workplace will not only help your employees, but the business over all.

Some ways management can help reduce work related stress are to set realistic targets, and provide employees with training and the opportunity for promotion to boost morale and keep productivity up. Even by making these changes it’s impossible to eliminate stress altogether.

Keeping an open door policy where employees feel comfortable talking about issues that are bothering them is important. This means they can also speak about having any substance misuse problems because of any stress or pressure they are feeling from the workplace.
