Dying Matters Week (Bereavement Support)
May 8 @ 8:00 am - May 14 @ 5:00 pm
57% of employees will have experienced a bereavement in the last five years and every day, more than 600 people quit work to look after older and disabled relatives. And yet, fewer than one in five managers feel very confident supporting someone they manage with a bereavement.
From 8 – 14 May 2023, during Dying Matters Week, encourage your staff to come together to talk about death, dying and grief in the workplace. It’s also a good opportunity to share with your line managers some information about how to support someone going through bereavement.
