Grief in the Workplace

  • Webinar Date: Thursday, October 17th, 2019
  • Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm (CST)

Webinar Description

Employees are the most important asset for running your organization and serving clients. Research indicates that illness or a death in the family is the second most common problem which affects workplace performance (stress is #1). When a death or other serious crisis occurs, on average it impacts the lives of more than 25 other people. Grief and loss can affect the individual or the entire team. Handling loss at work is challenging on a personal and professional level.

While 84% of companies have Employee Assistance Programs, only 10% of employees use them.  Managers and co-workers need to do more than just send a grieving individual to an EAP program which only addresses part of the grief/crisis picture.

In this webinar you will learn (learning objectives):

  • The impact of grief and how it affects the entire team.
  • What to do and say in times of crisis & grief.
  • How to talk to a grieving individual as well as their co-workers.
  • How the team’s productivity is affected during the grieving/crisis period.

Get ready to put plan in place to train your staff on how to handle grief or crisis in the workplace BEFORE a crisis arises.
