Corporate Social Work

Today, a successful organisation is looking for professionals to help address a range of issues; from the safety, health and wellbeing of their employees to improving the company’s financial, social and environmental performance. Social Workers recognise and understand human behaviour, motivation and interpersonal relationships, as well as workforce challenges. Therefore, True4Life believes that Social Workers have never been in a better position to contribute, and thrive, in a non-traditional, Private sector, setting.

The Corporate Social Worker is able to take on many roles, from helping employees manage the demands of work, life and mental health issues to helping companies build positive relationships with their communities. That might mean helping employees deal with substance abuse, domestic violence, divorce or military deployments. It could also include coaching teams on how to be more productive, resolve conflicts and manage change. It may also involve liaising with government agencies or conducting community needs assessments.

In response to the wider issues of global challenges such as natural and manmade disasters, health epidemics and the difficulties of sustainable development, Social Workers are also able to provide leadership skills in planning, management and administration. They are trained to work in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary settings, and are able to develop innovative solutions to problems.

Therefore, depending upon the needs of the organisation True4Life can deliver a model that focuses upon the well-being and functionality of the individual and the workforce as a whole, that considers the organisation from shop floor up to the highest level of management, and how they relate to one another and society.  

So why employ a Corporate Social Worker?

Governments and multinational companies are increasingly realising the importance of a holistic focus upon people, planet and profit. They are beginning to understand the significance of contributing to the community that supports them, and how this can affect long-term growth and success. In fact, most corporate social responsibility efforts are in areas traditionally supported by Social Work, including community development, public safety, education, public health and diversity. Social Workers can be the catalyst for a company's efforts to give back to their communities and workforces. Therefore, as more and more Corporate Social Workers are employed it can only be beneficial for all involved.
