Dealing with loss and grief in the workplace

 

Everyone is affected by loss and grief at some time in their life. This applies in the workplace as much as anywhere else. People do not leave their grief at home when they go to work and, of course, loss issues can arise within the workplace as well as outside it. While grief can be an extremely painful experience, it is not necessarily harmful. However, if the needs of the grieving person are not taken into consideration at work, their pain can be intensified and their suffering increased unnecessarily. Also, if the significance of grief is not recognised, the result can be accidents, problems with quality leading to complaints and conflicts and so on. It is therefore important that loss and grief issues are not ‘brushed under the carpet’ in busy workplaces. To find out more, choose from the menu below.
