Check in with your employee
At this point you will have had a conversation with your employee and suggested initial support services that might help.
During that initial conversation you should have outlined a plan for what you as well as what your employee will do to help
address the issue, when those actions will be complete as well as a date and time for a follow-up meeting.
Before that meeting, continue to observe how they are doing. Remain supportive, but give your employee time to work through
When you check back in with them at that meeting, ask them how they are.
If you notice that they are doing better, acknowledge that.
If there have been no improvements, revisit that initial conversation and see if there are other services that might be more
effective or other ways that you could support them.
If the initial support services are not helping, you might need to consider contacting your Human Resources Advisor for help
with other ways you can support your employee or to implement a performance expectations plan.
Remember, your employee does not need to share the details of his or her health or home issues with you. You are there to help
them through their challenges and get them back on track to being healthy at work.
