Workplace Bereavement.

Workplace Bereavement specialise in providing workplace bereavement training to companies, so that those trained advocates can support colleagues who experience bereavement loss. This pioneering programme is a valuable addition to any employee well-being provision. It is an area which is often difficult to broach, with people feeling huge uncertainty about what to say to a bereaved colleague and how to say it

Our Services

Bereavement is not a mental health issue. Grief is a normal human response to loss and we need to be prepared to safeguard our staff. Studies highlight that 35% of employees felt they did not receive bereavement guidance from their employers. With the number of deaths in the UK being 667,000 in 2021, employers need to be ready for the extreme difficulty death leaves behind. One of the biggest hidden costs in the UK is absenteeism – a staggering £7 billion pounds yearly. A bereaved employee is most likely to have 30 days off beyond the initial bereavement leave. This is unscheduled time off.

Our Services

From small group settings to CPD Compliance, we cover a range of training. Our experienced qualified trainers will train your employee advocates with the required communication and skills to support bereaved employees returning to work

Here to Help

We spend 90,000 hours of our lives with our co-workers, often more than we do with family members. Our co-workers or colleagues can have an influential impact on our life choices and happiness. Managing the return to work is essential so that the bereaved and your other employees are supported

How we can help

We know that death is not a boardroom conversation, however, it happens to everyone and a lot of us are reluctant to talk about it, which in turn has negative mental health implications; this is where we come in.

Workplace Bereavement specialise in providing workplace bereavement one-day advocacy training to companies and offer professional supervisory support post training. We aim to raise awareness of the difficulty of losing someone close and how it will inevitably affect their work.

Testimonials

We came to Jacqui following the death of one of our employees’ close family to learn how we could provide better support.  Unsure of exactly what to expect, we were really impressed with the content of the course; it was very practical advice and help which was expertly delivered.  The small group approach really helps to improve the learning and sharing of experiences.  The setting is also beautiful!  This is not an area that is covered in any other HR or mental health training I am aware of but is one that everyone experiences so I would encourage anyone to go along – you won’t be disappointed
