Why make use of Occupational Health Psychology?
Any investment in your workforce is a wise investment, and by providing your employees with psychological assistance when needed, you manifest this fact to them.
It is important to assist employees in times of personal hardship in general, but especially when such hardship may affect their work performance, work attitude and/or saftey at work. It has been shown that this situation affects not only their own well-being, but that of their direct and indirect colleagues as well.
Besides traditional one-on-one sessions with the Occupational Health Psychologist, trainings and seminars can also be held to provide a better understanding of any situation that may pose a threat to mental health at work.
When to make use of Occupational Health Psychology?
It is wise to make use of Occupational Health Psychology when:
When an employer is under the impression that an employee’s problems are of an emotional nature, a preventive consultation with our Occupational Health Psychologist could be an option. For most of our clients, these preventive consulttations are included in their Sickleave Management contract.
What can I expect?
When our company doctor identifies an employee as having emotional disturbances, the employer is requested to allow an intake session with our Occupational Health Psychologist. Intake sessions are used to evaluate an employee’s current problem/complaint/symptom and to evaluate if further psychological sessions are required. An estimate of the amount of sessions needed will be given.
All one-on-one and other types of consultations are private. Safeguarding an employee’s privacy is of utmost importance to Medwork.
