A highly sensitive colleague employee absorbs incentives and impressions faster than a not very sensitive person. This colleague with HSP usually has a signal function for the atmosphere at work, a good dose of empathy, intuition, sincerity, responsibility, creativity and fulfills a caring role. In the right working environment HSPs perform well above average.
A colleague who does not work in the right environment can hardly handle stimuli, they have an increased risk of overstimulation or do not feel understood. The working environment is important, often it is difficult to work in a room with bright lights, strong odors, crowds, many people or unpleasant temperatures. An HSP employee will not function properly in the work of a dominant employer or colleague. They are very loyal and sensitive to people and work processes. In case of overstimulation, the HSP colleague often withdraws from the situation. It is important to give him or her the space to regain balance.
A highly sensitive person or highly sensitive colleague would do well to make it known at work that they are HSPs, so that the environment can deal with them professionally. Acceptance is in the interest of the highly sensitive employee, for the employer and also for the colleagues.
