New On-Site Seminars Coach Business Leaders in Mitigating the Hidden Costs of Grieving Employees
The Workforce Capital Recovery Program's "Grief in the Workplace Leadership Seminars" are available to business and organizational leaders across America
By: R. Glenn Kelly Publications
Every year in America, indifferent organizations lose over $100 billion in precious revenue due to the hidden direct and indirect costs of employee bereavement and grief in the workplace. According to the American Hospice Foundation, over 4 million employees will experience the death of a loved one every year, and 25% of employees in any organization can be experiencing the emotional impacts of grief at any one time.
As the seminar presenter, R. Glenn Kelly brings a unique coaching approach through his experiences as both a former successful business executive and as a bereaved father. While many grief advocates will focus predominant on support for the grieved worker, R. Glenn balances the compassion needs of the employee with the knowledge that a business remains responsible to other employees, customers, suppliers, and more. Through proven preemptive concepts and reactive responses to numerous scenarios, the seminars identify the emotional impacts of employee grief and the resulting potential areas of risk to the organization.
One widely-accepted commissioned grief study was conducted with over 25,000 bereaved subjects who were actively employed at the time they experienced the unfortunate death of a loved one. Of those, 85% who identified as management personnel reported experiencing major errors in judgment on the job that went on for six months or longer. Another 90% of front-line employees who became injured on the job after the loss reported that grief influences contributed to the accident.
The three-hour seminars are conducted on-site at the client's business facility in a highly interactive format where the leadership attendees gain a deep awareness and understanding of grief on the job. The attendees will also obtain comprehensive employee grief support actions, an knowledge of inherent risks of grief to safety and productivity, as well as be able to design formal Bereavement Action Plans to mitigate all future grief in the workplace events.
