Free 15mins adult chat room - Accomodating work

For instance, if everyone on a team needs to give a presentation, but the order of the presentations isn’t especially important, then it may be possible to trade days with someone else on the team.

In this article, I will discuss a number of ideas for providing accommodations that relate to scheduling.

Not all bipolar people will need all of these accommodations; in fact, some bipolar workers may need no accommodations of this type at all.

Because bipolar is effectively a periodic disability in most cases, there will be times when we can work at full effectiveness (and sometimes more-than-full effectiveness, thanks to hypomania) and there may be other times when our work will be impaired or it is impossible to work entirely.

As a result, many bipolar employees work best when they have flexible work schedules.

For many of us, it is even impossible, especially in jurisdictions in which care is state sponsored, and therefore we have little control over the schedule.

Therefore, one very important accommodation is allowing for time for bipolar employees to see their physicians and their therapists.

It is in many ways easiest when we work on projects that are done over a period of time.

We can move the heaviest parts of the work to points in time when we are most effective and get the most done.

Bipolar disorder is a mental illness that affects people quite differently, and is ultimately a spectrum.
