There are many personal issues that can impact an individual’s work performance and make one’s focus and dedication to his or her job difficult. Though, there are additional concerns that can more directly affect a person’s day-to-day functioning and hinder an individual’s ability to carry out his or her daily work responsibilities. Among such are workplace issues, which can bring about undue stress, emotional pain, and a variety of other negative feelings and emotions that are capable of derailing even the most committed of employees.
While human resource departments are trained and equipped to take on workplace concerns, KeySolutions EAP is pleased to offer both employers and their employees the support, guidance, and resources they need to improve upon the dynamic of their work environments.
Types of Workplace Issues
Even with high standards of professionalism in place, many employees fall victim to workplace concerns and issues. When this is the case, human resource staff, supervisors, and even other employees are called to report workplace issues for the betterment of all who work for an organization.
Among the types of workplace issues that may arise and necessitate intervention in order to preserve a high quality and satisfying work environment, the following are those that can occur:
- Conflict with a supervisor
- Coworker conflict
- Harassment issues
- Issues related to occupational performance
- Personal safety risks while at work
- Safety concerns
- Substance abuse
- Unacceptable or inappropriate behavior
- Work performance anxiety
When the above work issues take place, it is best to bring them to the attention of one’s supervisor and/or human resources staff member so that a resolution can be achieved.
How Workplace Issues Can Impact the Work Enviroment
There are numerous effects that can occur if workplace issues remain an ongoing problem. For this reason, and more, it is important for a person to report cases of workplace concerns. Failing to do so, however, may result in the following:

- Loss of valuable employees
