Peer to peer support – how to be good friend and support for colleagues and close ones

There are temporary reduction in employee productivity caused by various life crises which not require immediate action at the employee-manager or HR BP-employee level. Sometimes a life crisis, breakup, divorce, chronic stress, serious illness of a loved one or even chronic mood disorders can be taken care of in contact with someone who can give basic psychological support. Research shows that the factor that most effectively helps in overcoming crisis or even traumatic situations is social support. Nowadays the awareness that psychological support is a skill that needs to be trained is growing.

Employees who struggle with psychological problems resulting from temporary life difficulties can cope effectively if they receive understanding, acceptance and very specific support activities, including those aimed at strengthening their sense of resourcefulness. Such competences related to psychological help can be educated within the peer support system.
