Do you know someone like Steve, whose daughter is causing him problems at your work?
Wendy is Steve’s daughter. Although she doesn’t work for the company it really feels like she is having a big influence on it. She used to be an absolute angel and you never heard anything but good about her, but now she’s so upset about what’s happening at home, the way she is reacting is having a big impact on her dad’s working life.
She’s often late for school – and as he drops her off it makes him late for work.
She calls him complaining about her mum, and often the school call him to go to meetings as she’s really acting out at school.
How can you help Steve and his Daughter, Wendy?
Is it down to you to help Steve’s Daughters? You don’t employ Wendy so it’s not your problem right?
Think back to when Wendy was behaving like an angel? How effective was Steve then?
Family issues can have a significant impact on staff productivity – a member of staff dealing with constant home life issues can’t help but bring it to work. Sadly, we know that support for young people’s mental health is sadly lacking with children sometimes waiting 6 months to 1 year for an appointment.
NECS Works could support Wendy quickly if Steve or his work were willing to pay for the treatment.
How NECS Works can help:
NECS Works can provide employee counselling for Steve and his daughter Wendy to help deal with family issues.
