At any time, one in 10 employees are likely to be affected  by losing a loved one, yet research  has found that bereaved people are being failed by a lack of support in the workplace. It found that:
Employers should be aware of the impact of bereavement on their employees and put policies and support processes in place to include training for managers. Being able to respond to employees in confidence, communicating effectively and with compassion makes a huge difference.
Tips for an employer to consider are:
Failure to consider these points can lead to increased sickness absence, reduced motivation, productivity, and an increase in work-place stress.
Whilst some employers find themselves positioned to provide workplace support following bereavement, employees find the opportunity to get confidential help from a service external to their employer invaluable.
There is no set way to grieve, to work best, any support needs to be tailored to the individual and their specific circumstances. Continuity and content of support is very important, particularly bearing in mind the long-term and changing nature of grief
External support services are available directly or can be offered as an added-value service by employee assistance programmes, protection insurance (income protection, critical illness, life), private medical insurance and cashplans.
However, employers should be cautious because the content of support services offered can vary significantly. Some services can be a very light touch helpline whereas others can provide long-term support from a dedicated nurse who can assess and organise the most appropriate face-to-face therapy or counselling
FSB Care provides comprehensive support for people in bereavement from a dedicated registered nurse with bereavement training. A course of specialist bereavement counselling or complementary therapy (e.g. massage to help relaxation or to aid sleep) can be provided when appropriate.
FSB Care is free to members and can be purchased for employees or other non-members.
When employees do receive sensitive and appropriate bereavement support, there are numerous benefits in the workplace including a strong sense of goodwill towards the organisation with increased loyalty and engagement from all staff which makes good business sense too.
