We have put together a resource that serves as a guide on how employers can support employees coping with grief. Times have been very hard the world over the last year and a half. Many of us have lost loved ones, been ill ourselves, or cared for sick and ailing family members. Companies have taken several steps to support their people through the difficult period and this bereavement support template details the following:
1. Support Measures
2. Templates and Formats
3. Useful information
4. Best Practices Knowledge-sharing (Policies and practices adopted by well-respected corporates)
These benefits are a show of goodwill on the part of the employer. When addressing your company bereavement policy, get perspectives from as many employees as you can. This input will help you build a plan that works for your organisation and the people who power it.
