What To Expect When They Run Out of Options

Everyone cracks under pressure. When someone is put under enough strain, enough pressure, and enough stress, they will What To Expect When They Run Out of Optionseventually snap. It is a measure of their character and of their background to see how much they will slide backward before they stop themselves from sliding any further. When someone snaps, they are usually so tired and so frustrated that stopping is only achieved by going to bed and sleeping it off, going somewhere more peaceful and perhaps safer, or by killing the object of their stress. The last option is not one in which many people indulge, but they have done so enough that extreme emotional duress can now be argued as a defense for murder in just about every first world country in the world.

When an employee runs out of options, and they find themselves under this extreme emotional duress, remember that everyone acts differently when they snap.

Some people stop talking and either sit back and watch or just turn off their thinking altogether and are not reachable by talking to them.

Some people scream and/or throw things, leaving a visible and audible path of destruction in their wake.

Some use particularly nasty verbal digs at the person with whom they are conversing, thus injuring the other person emotionally.

And some, of course, just explode and perform the above mentioned killings of notorious fame and repute.

Your employees should never get to the above levels, if at all possible. If they are stressed out to that degree, one would hope that they could find solace and comfort by taking a sick day and remaining home with their families and loved ones. However, this is not always an option, and employees often turn to drug or alcohol abuse because it is the only way out, in their minds.

Workplace drug testing is not all about making sure that employees don’t step out of line. It is also about forging connections with those of us who might need counseling or other types of help. If your business provides these services, then that is a great way for your employees to get the help they need. Substance abuse cannot be fixed by drug screening, but it can be aided by identifying the source of the problem. For more information on drug screening, call Mediscree today to make an appointment:
