Workplace counselling is aimed at providing support for the physical and mental welfare of employees. This effort will have impact on increasing productivitiy and work performance of employees so that as the end result the company will get a better profit. Good impressions for the company will also be gathered because workplace counselling can be seen as the manifestation of company responsibilities, legally and ethically. Employees will respect the company when employees are viewed as potential assests that need to be developed optimally. In practice, the concepts mentioned previously seem different. A survey conducted on 26 small-and-middle-size companies in Java, which handle various fields, found that most of the companies have not provided optimal efforts on workplace counselling. Some reasons identified were related to the time and cost effieciencies, and employees’ suspicion to the division in the company, which handles workplace counselling, will function as the company’s tool for making pressures on employees. The culture of Indonesian people and current situation in Indonesia, which coloured by ‘distrustful’ apparently influence this fenomena. Some companies, which have started to provide facilities for workplace counselling, mostly a middle-size company, have not been functioning the facilities due to the lack of publicity and popularity regarding workplace counselling. Suggestions made for the companies in regards to providing workplace counselling.
