Meet Steve – The Admin Worker


Do you know someone like Steve, the admin worker, who are struggling with family issues at your work?

Steve’s having real problems outside of work, he discovered his wife has been having an affair and now they are arguing all the time.  He’s coming into work more than he should just to get out of the house.  He’s always on the phone with someone – either solicitor, his wife, his daughter, her school.  In fact, he’s hardly ever here.

He’s getting short-tempered with his colleagues and spends ages giving them an update on what’s going on. Even worse he’s upset some big customers – and you’ve had to work hard to keep the peace.

Although he’s coming into work, there are days when he may as well not be here.  Now you know what presenteeism means!

How can you help Steve?

Steve’s a good worker but you’ve recognised recently his thoughts are elsewhere. With the best will in the world, you can’t leave your problem at the door.

Family issues account for 48% of the underlying issues for people who come to NECS for counselling.

It’s important that Steve has someone to talk to about this.

NECS Works can offer employee counselling for him and his wife to try and resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

If Steve has a regular opportunity to discuss these issues and gets these thoughts out of his head he may be more productive at work.
