Bereavement will understandably affect each individual differently. So why use one framework to support employees when there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to the death of a loved one?
The sudden death of my mum came at a time when I was a busy HRD managing a large international team whilst working daily with the CEO and board of directors. My manager was supportive from the beginning.
Traumatic change can impact anyone, both physically and emotionally. How people respond to this change can completely differ from person to person. With the ongoing pandemic hitting the UK, most organisations have had to adjust and adapt their ways in order to support employees to better cope with extreme change.
I recently took part in a London HR Connection webinar to discuss the complex issues of supporting employees through all types of traumatic change, including bereavement, redundancy, divorce and the emotional impact of all the changes we have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Before making a redundancy, you should consider the wellbeing of the redundant employee as well as the wider team. Not only will a redundancy impact their financial status, but it can also have a knock-on effect with those living with your employee, such as their friends, family or children.
