There is a direct correlation between personal problems and productivity in the workplace. At any given time, approximately 10 percent of your staff is struggling with a difficult personal problem. These problems may affect attitude, attendance, performance, and general productivity at work. A personal problem that is resolved allows the employee to regain performance and you, the supervisor, to continue your job of motivating and monitoring performance.
Memorial Employee Assistance Services is available to provide the support you need to deal with any difficult employee behavior or performance issue.
