Grief is a normal human response to loss; therefore; organisations need to be prepared to safeguard their staff. With mental health being highly supported; a greater understanding of the struggles specific to bereavement is required for employees to feel supported during this time. The trained employee will gain the knowledge and confidence to assist colleagues by knowing what to say; what not to say; how to handle difficult situations and become more aware of the warning signs of a person in need. The training complements your organisation’s well-being provision and will benefit the wider welfare of all employees.
Workplace Bereavement specialises in providing workplace bereavement training to companies so that those trained advocates can support colleagues who experience bereavement loss. Our programmes are valuable additions to any well-being provision. It is an area which is often difficult to broach, with people feeling huge uncertainty about what to say to a bereaved person and how to say it.
