How family breakdowns affect employees

A family breakdown tears apart the normal routine of everyday life. It will show in multiple ways at work, such as:

  • Stress and depression
  • Emotional outbursts and temper flares
  • Constant contact from partners, lawyers and others
  • Lack of concentration or focus
  • Missed appointments and/or lateness

Our awareness training helps managers and colleagues spot the signs.

How family breakdown affects business owners and leaders

If the head of a company, business leader or owner are going through a breakdown, their emotional state and stress will inevitably affect their employees.

  • They might fear for their job if the business is sold or split.
  • They might not be able to talk to you in a calm way if you are too stressed or tired to talk.
  • Clients may not get the level of service they expect
  • Clients may be going through it themselves!

Our training helps you as their colleagues to devise ways of helping them through practical steps that keep the business on track.
