Coaching for HR teams and line managers on working with staff with an alcohol problem

We provide coaching for managers and HR teams working with staff members who may have difficulty controlling their drinking or managing an alcohol-related incident.

Most employers (77%) interviewed identified alcohol as a major threat to employee wellbeing and a factor encouraging sickness absence.

Should an employee be in breach of the policy or come forward to request help with an alcohol use disorder, Alcohol Change UK can provide any of the following on an ad-hoc basis:

  • Guidance to HR, the individual’s line manager or any other stakeholder on how to proceed with either support or taking more formal action
  • Advice on appropriate support interventions for the individual and anyone else affected by their drinking
  • Therapeutic sessions online to support the individual’s recovery or to help to prepare them for face-to-face treatment.

Alcohol screening with brief advice

A third of employees admitted to having been to work with a hangover and 15% have been drunk at work leading to reduced productivity, tiredness and mistakes.

We can also offer in-house alcohol risk screening. Staff who are drinking at higher-risk levels will be offered tailored advice on reducing risk, based on their responses.

The screening uses AUDIT-C, a validated tool that comprises three questions about alcohol consumption and identifies drinkers who are at increasing risk of harm. Screening is accompanied by a report for you on any alcohol issues identified in your organisation, as well as suggestions on how to respond to concerns across different areas of the company.
