Supporting Staff Bereavement in the Workplace

Tue, 8 Oct 2024

Virtual, Online

This masterclass is perfect for senior staff who wish to improve the support offered to staff who have been impacted by grief and bereavement.

Navigating the period after an employee suffers a bereavement can be a difficult time for employers. How do you effectively support staff with their grief? How can you put in place proactive support for staff’s mental health, and what should your bereavement policy look like?

Join us for this half-day masterclass to explore these common questions and improve the support you can offer to your staff. You will come away with a better understanding of the impact that bereavement and grief can have on your employees, how it can impact their work and what practical steps you can take to support employees in the workplace.

During the day, you will have plenty of time to network with colleagues, discuss specific challenges and put your questions to Sam.

"In one year, 24% of those in employment experience a bereavement; however a quarter of those, just under 2 million people, experience grief of an intensity which impairs their ability to work and puts them at risk of related physical and mental health conditions."
