Grief in America's Workplace

Are your employees empowered?

Every year, companies in the United States alone lose well over $100 billion dollars in lost productivity due to grief and trauma that enter into the workplace.

Grief is universal. All of us have grieved in our life and will grieve again. Yet, why is it that so many of us find it so hard to talk about grief, loss, and death?

  • What do you to say to a colleague who just had a loss?
  • How long does it take to return to full productivity?
  • How do you know if they are doing okay?

Grief doesn't have to be an uncomfortable subject. We can learn to support one another, and with just a little effort here and there, we can collectively save billions of dollars.

Let's Talk About The Elephant In The Room

With just a little time and energy, all management and leaders can be trained to know:

  • How to talk about grief, which works in their personal lives as well.
  • What to say (and not say) to a grieving employee.
  • Ways to monitor and support subordinates in the coming weeks and months of work following a great personal loss.
  • Ways to assess and mitigate possible grief risks.

It's time to take an in-depth look at how we've been managing grief and uncover simple changes we can implement today to improve the lives of our employees and company culture.
