Employees help each other in the workplace with the Peer Supporter system
We operate the Peer Supporter system under which employees with qualifications in psychology and health and safety act as volunteers to reach out to employees in the workplace and offer consultation as volunteers after going through a certain selection and training process. Peer Supporters create an employee-friendly workplace based on a bottom-up approach. The Wellness Center offers more expert advice in response to referrals from Peer Supporters and develops the skills of Peer Supporters.
