As a highly sensitive employee, there is usually a signal function for the atmosphere at work, a good dose of empathy, creativity and a caring role. In the right positive working environment HSPers perform above average well.
If one is not in the right environment, the processing of stimuli is difficult and there is an increased risk of overstimulation or not feeling understood. The working environment is often important because it is difficult to work in a room where bright lights, strong odors, many people or unpleasant temperatures are present. With dominant colleagues, the HSPer will often get the worst of it!
A highly sensitive person does well to make it known at work that he or HSPer is, so that professional work can be handled in the interest of the highly sensitive employee, employer and colleagues so that there is acceptance.
For employers, colleagues and occupational health and safety at work, there is a special category for Professional-Groups at HSP Point with the right information and resources about HSP at work. It is advisable to inform the employer, colleagues and possibly the health and safety department about this website.
