Managing grief in the workplace

Understand how to better manage grief in the workplace this National Grief Awareness Week

Grief is something that we will all go through at some point in our life after experiencing a loss. While there is no ‘right way’ to grieve, what everyone agrees on is that sadness must be expressed and discussed in a way that is compassionate. Nobody should be alone in their grief.

As we get closer to Christmas, it may become more obvious who in your workforce is grieving – because there’s no set timescale to feel better when it can feel like their whole world has been pulled out from under them.   Knowing how to manage bereavement in the workplace can have a really positive impact on employee welbeing.

Getting involved in National Grief Awareness Week (4-8 December) is a meaningful way to support those who are grieving and contribute to breaking down the barriers surrounding grief, because we’re all #BetterTogether. There are two upcoming webinars to help raise awareness of this, and how to manage grief.
