PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This Unit Standard focuses on the role of a first line manager, section head, team leader, supervisor, shop steward, transformation committee member or Employment Equity committee member in supporting employees who are vulnerable or at risk. A manager in the context of this Unit Standard is the manager of a small business and first line managers of business units in medium and large organisations. The term business unit in this qualification implies a small business, cost centre, section or department.

It is envisaged that this Unit Standard will be used as part of Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP).

The qualifying learner is capable of:
  • Analysing events that could result in compromised employee wellbeing.
  • Analysing the need for a wellbeing intervention.
  • Proposing an intervention for a specific situation.
  • Monitoring, evaluating and reviewing an existing wellbeing intervention. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    There is open access to this Unit Standard. Learners should be competent in Communication and Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 3. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The typical scope of this Unit Standard is:
  • Events that could result in compromised employee well being include, but are not limited to, HIV/AIDS, conflict and diversity, addiction, dread disease, loss and trauma, abuse, anxiety and depression, relationships, disability, stress, transformation and change, illness.
  • The framework for an intervention should include a definition of the intervention, scope and eligibility, benefits offered, protocols and procedures, limitations, capacity and associated risk.
  • Statistical information may be obtained for Human Resources, consultation, counseling case studies, manager`s records/information, and impirical information from an intervention.
  • A strategy to manage compromised employee wellbeing should include arrangements for monitoring, evaluating and reviewing the intervention. As it is not possible to assess this stage in the strategy as part of the assessment of the unit standard learners, are required to demonstrate the knowledge and skills required to monitor, evaluate and review an intervention using an existing wellbeing intervention.
