Most employees will experience grief in the workplace at some point and it is important that organisations know what to do when an employee advises of their loss. Understanding that employees transition through a ‘grief lifecycle’ and are likely to show common symptoms of grief is critical for organisations to effectively support their employee through their grieving period.
Applying practical strategies during this difficult time can reduce absenteeism, enhance loyalty and engagement and appropriately manage the employee’s performance.
