Personal issues and social isolation impacting the workplace


The increasing use of technology and reduction of genuine personal time has significantly tipped the work-life balance, with work stress leading to illness and suicides presenting significant legal and HR issues for global companies. How should employers respond to these issues? To what degree should, or can, an employer investigate or involve themselves with their employees’ personal issues? What are best practices for addressing and preventing these problems?
