Top tips: planning training to manage drug and alcohol misuse at work

Organisation: CIPD


Drug and alcohol addictions are mental health concerns that line managers should be aware of. The occasional use of recreational drugs and alcohol does not necessarily mean somebody had an addiction – but if their use starts to interfere with someone’s work, it’s important for line managers to be aware of how to handle this difficult situation.

This PDF from CIPD is aimed at HR professionals and trainers who will be helping line managers to recognise and manage alcohol and drug problems at work. It features ten tips to ensure the training is conducted in an effective and compassionate way, and includes links to further information and guides if required.
