About the Course

In a world of increasing complexity and stress in the lives of people, especially at workplaces, counselling in organizations has emerged as the latest Human Resource tool to increase the quality of the workforce and to attract and retain its best employees.

The employees can be suffering from various workplaces related issues like task deadlines, meeting expectations, work-life balance, interpersonal relations with superiors and subordinates. With globalization, it is also very important to be adjusted to the respective culture of the organization and get along with colleagues from different countries. Organisations have realized the importance of having a stress-free yet motivated and capable workforce and have integrated the counselling services by making it a part of their culture.

Counselling helps the employee to share and look at his/her problems from a new perspective, help him/her and to face and deal with the problems in a better way. Counselling at workplace is a way of the organisation to care about its employees.
