LoS! Gaining the necessary self-help competence throughout the different stages of life

Grievous moments in life, such as the death of a close relative, or difficult periods in life, for example caring for relatives, often have a major impact on employees’ performance and ability to work.

In many companies, supportive measures aimed at providing relief for employees suffering from the negative impacts of these periods and incidents in life, are seldom taken into account. And if they are, these actions are frequently implemented so late that the psychological strain becomes a heavy burden.

In order to prepare employees to better deal with these situations, REWE Group has launched the “LoS!” project in cooperation with the Institut für gesundheitliche Prävention (IFGP)(Institute of Occupational Health) to jointly develop and implement support systems to help with particular life situations.
The aim of the project is to provide employees, HR managers and multipliers within the company with the appropriate competences to actively deal with critical incidents and stages in life. At the same time, strengthening employees’ sense of self-responsibility disencumbers the company. During the course of the project, measures for accompanying and supporting employees (e.g. check lists, guidelines and other media) are developed.

The term of this project, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, is 24 months (January 2011 to January 2013).
