Managing Grief in the Workplace
Speaker, Workshop Leader, Coach
Approximately one in four employees is grieving a loss at any given time.
Grief not only encompass death of a spouse, child, relative, friend or co-worker but also includes such events as illness, loss of a job or a home, a divorce or loss of a beloved pet.
Balancing productivity and compassion can be a difficult challenge for managers and most managers do not have the experience, tools or training needed. Before or when loss strikes having a program in place will ensure that you are handling the situation in the best possible way. A program should incorporate training and coaching to understand the emotions of the grief process and ways to provide support for the grieving employee, team or client.
When grief strikes one of your employees, it can have a costly impact on your team and workplace. An individual’s response to their loss is only the beginning of the process of recovery. Our effective programs help employers reduce the impact of loss within the workplace. Programs are best put into place before the need arises.
