Hi all, I am a 3rd year student currently working on my dissertation entitled 'Stress-related addictive behavior and affects on performance.' The food serving and preparation industry has a high rate of employees admitting to drug use and/or heavy drinking in their leisure time, or even at work. A kitchen can be a very stressful place to work, I am looking into how this stress can lead to employees taking substances as a stress release, and if an employee's performances worsen if they are taking drugs or heavily drinking in their spare time. In terms of an employees performance, this includes absenteeism, punctuality, accidents, productivity, proneness to mistakes etc. I would like to gain more experiences of employees being drug users and/or heavy drinkers and how it can affect them. If any kitchen managers or head chefs, or anyone who has had experiences with employees like this, I would be grateful if you could answer the few questions below, it will only take a few minutes and would be invaluable to my research paper. Many thanks. Questionnaire: 1) Have you had any experience with other employees taking drugs in their spare time, at work, or arriving at work under the influence of substances? Yes/No 2) If yes, did you notice any changes to their performance? were they more incident prone, miss work completely or late to work etc 3) How did you, or the manager, react to this employee and what action was taken? 4) Do you think their is a drug/alcohol problem in this industry? Please provide a brief explanation of your choice. I thank you for your time and look forward to your responses.
