About this session:

Addiction and dependency are both taboo subjects. Having a dependency or addiction are characteristics of vulnerability for your customers, but what about your staff? Firms have a corporate social responsibility to their customers and also a duty of care as employers for their staff.

This could mean your employees/customers are facing/have faced other personal problems and they may need support.

During this awareness session, we will examine:

  • What are dependency and addiction?
  • Why more understanding is needed on dependency and addiction
  • The common drugs and ways of gambling/video gaming and their accessibility
  • The size of the problem
  • How dependency and addiction affect different industries
  • How to spot the signs
  • Practical tips for how you can start a conversation to support your employees and colleagues, customers, friends or family members etc
  • The importance of signposting and have signposting information
  • What is available in terms of help and support for substance use disorders

This session is ideal for Senior Managers, Directors, HR, Supervisors, Team Leaders, Mental Health/Wellbeing Champions and individuals who are interested in understanding more about this topic.

We look forward to joining you on this session.    Please pass this onto your staff and also your HR Department and people responsible for staff wellbeing and development.
