About this event


		Managing Alcohol & Drugs in the Workplace - Half Day image

The COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions have affected all our lives. Many of us have had to quickly adapt to working in new ways – predominately working from home and teamworking remotely – creating new pressures on us at work. It’s not just work. There are also new pressures in our home life as we live with these restrictions, childcare challenges and more.

Supporting employee welfare has never been more important than it is now.

A Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) survey conducted in August 2020 found that over a quarter (27%) of those surveyed had increased their alcohol consumption because of the pandemic and associated restrictions.

Further reports have shown an increase in people drinking earlier in the day and 90% of those surveyed admitting to drinking while working at home .

Several studies have found increased consumption during the pandemic linked to mental health, boredom, and isolation. A recent survey by Alcohol Focus Scotland found that 18% of those surveyed had drank to handle stress/anxiety overall, and half had drank more than usual to handle stress/anxiety.

At Alcohol Focus Scotland, we strongly recommend support for alcohol and drug misuse as part of employer’s wellbeing offer including a robust, supportive policy and education for staff and managers.

This training is aimed at providing participants with an introduction to the impact alcohol and drugs have on Scottish society and specific guidance on how to address alcohol and drug related issues in the workplace.

Who is it for?

Anyone with responsibility for supervising or managing staff and HR professionals.

Learning outcomes:

  • Discuss the impact of alcohol and drugs on Scottish society.
  • Explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions on consumption.
  • Discuss good practice in workplace alcohol and drug policy.
  • Demonstrate how to raise and manage alcohol and drug related issues in the workplace.
