How grief is affecting your staff  You may be here because you're looking for the right words to say to a bereaved employee. But did you know that many different losses can affect your staff's ability to perform well at work? 

It doesn't matter if you're a senior member of staff or it's your first day of work - we have all experienced loss in our lives, whether it happened recently or years ago.  
Unfortunately, grief is cumulative and can greatly affect the way we're able to work, play and live. Grief can cause us to lose focus, which impacts our productivity and our ability to meet deadlines. It can also cause memory problems and brain fog, decision fatigue, a lack of motivation, isolation, long-term absence as well as depression and burnout. All of these can mean mistakes, misunderstandings and ultimately cost a company hundreds of pounds per year. 
 
As a supervisor, you may struggle to find the right words or know how to address loss in the workplace. After all, no one wants to talk about grief, right? 
 
Yet employers that take an open, honest approach to grief will make a huge difference in terms of company morale, well being, positivity, productivity and dedication. Grief UK can help. Take a look at our resources below or inquire directly to find out how we can support you and your team.

Here's what others had to say 

"Carole spoke, at very short notice, at The WAY Foundation Annual Conference to a large group of widowed people, all at different stages of their grieving process and held the room spellbound throughout her presentation. Her style is compelling and engaging and I believe that she made each person in the room feel that she was talking directly to them: chiming with their own experience and using both humour and pathos in a very well balanced way. 
 
She was also able to broaden her presentation to allow everyone to understand that grief recovery is a wider subject than simply mourning the loss of a particular person who has died. 
I would not hesitate to recommend her as a speaker to groups large or small. She is professional, very well briefed and prepared and inclusive with her audience. I believe everyone went away from her presentation with coping strategies in mind and plenty of food for thought for the future." 
- Linsay Given-Black 
"All the staff found the training both helpful and informative, Carole explained the rationale behind the myths and provided insightful ways in which to approach bereavement in a professional capacity. We have no hesitation in recommending Grief Recovery to other businesses, an appropriate and enjoyable resource for bereavement training."
