Workplace Trauma Solutions workbook is written by a Human Resources professional, certified coach and addresses the many facets of managing a workforce that is, or could be, dealing with a variety of trauma situations.

1

Workplace disruption causes mistakes

Distraction for the employees that takes away the focus on work. When employees don’t focus, they make mistakes. Employee may lose ability to keep up pace (like before); distracted to the point that makes it necessary to hire someone else (or assign) work to another person; May last for a much longer time than anticipated by the manager.


2

Managers have limited time & desire to focus on trauma.

Your managers are busy with the day-to-day demands of their job and focused on getting the work done. If your company is not currently experiencing a trauma situation, managers do not want to turn their attention to something they perceive as unnecessary. However, given today's business climate and the world we live in, trauma could strike your employees or company at a moments notice. Not having a plan or an understanding of the needs of the grieving till the moment strikes, leaves you, your managers, and the company in a bad position. 


3

Productivity Drops during times of trauma & loss.

With 4, sometimes 5 generations in the workplace today, the chances are that your organization will experience some type of loss is highly likely. Being knowledgable, and prepared, for such an event is the best way to ensure that you are able to manage the drop in productivity to best mitigate the effects on the work. Your employee’s lack of focus often adds more work responsibilities on to the other employees making it difficult to meet deadlines, and complete ongoing work. 


4

Resentment from team members doing extra work

A trauma/loss event often involves reassigning work responsibilities for either the short term or possibly a longer term. While the circumstances dictate that assigning other work to other employees is necessary, many employees today are carrying a full load of work to begin with. Additional work could lead to high stress levels for the entire team. Having a communication plan in place can help ease the tension caused by the trauma event as well as the additional workload. Knowing how to address these sensitive issues with your team can provide you with the support you need, when you need it most.
