"Employee alcohol misuse can harm your business"
by Dr Colin Payton

A key employee can be difficult to replace and our cutting edge alcohol programme provides intensive support to help the employee overcome the problem. Given the nature of the problem, inevitably some employees fail to manage their misuse. In such cases, the programme provides clear evidence of continuing problems which permits employers to consider whether continuation of employment is appropriate.

Please contact us for further information about the above or future events.
