Today’s corporate culture requires organisations to be more responsive to their employee’s psychological needs which often requires the engagement of an external consultant to assist in the management of organisational changes and / or conflict. In addition to this, organisations are tasked with the responsibility of ensuring their employees are psychologically fit for work and able to function in the work environment.
Why use a Consultant?
There are two main reasons to engage a consultant namely:
- To assist with change management; and
- To assist with employee management.
Organisational transformation can be stressful for managers who implement changes and, the employees these changes impact on. The delay in managing internal issues can result in problems with staff morale, an increase in absenteeism, attrition and lowered productivity.
The work – life balance becomes disrupted when life events intrude on an individual’s ability to complete their work thus it’s becoming more commonplace for organisations to provide psychological support to employees to improve performance and retention. Employees can present with a range of psychological difficulties that impact on their ability to execute their tasks which they may not want to disclose in depth to a line manager or colleague. In these instances, an external consultant is an invaluable organisational asset.
