Employees sometimes look to their organization’s HR department for support when their personal and professional lives collide.
Having difficult conversations is inherent to the HR role, and it’s inevitable that employees will disclose some personal information to you. Personal issues can influence an employee’s performance and therefore are relevant to the workplace. It is important to recognize when an employee needs support and when they just want to chat about their personal lives.
