CORPORATE SOCIAL WORK
A corporate social worker is an expert in the field of Psychosocial Workload (PSW). Based on this expertise, he or she helps individual employees to take the lead on their employability and the organisation to achieve its objectives.
Psychosocial support: activation to self-management
If an employee’s performance at work deteriorates as a result of private circumstances or work-related problems, guidance and advice from a corporate social worker can help. The guidance is mainly aimed at allowing the employee to take the lead on managing his own health and employability. Supporting them in finding their intrinsic motivation, learning to deal with the obstacles they experience and solving problems themselves. In case of conflicts and grief processing, specific treatment methods are applied.
The approach is practical and the number of sessions is usually limited. If necessary, others will also be included in the support process, such as the manager or partner. The sessions take place on a voluntary basis and are confidential.
In addition to psychosocial counselling of individual employees and coaching of their manager, the corporate social worker can also support you in the following:
- Management advice on employment relations and working conditions and what this means for the organisation’s social policy.
- Information on specific issues that may arise within the organisation, such as preventing burn-out, dealing with change and undesirable behaviour.
Involvement of a corporate social worker is effective for both prevention and reintegration.
