Northern Illinois Hospice and Grief Center has implemented a new educational program titled Grief in the Workplace.
The program, aimed at educating both employers and employees about the effects of grief on the workplace, focuses on promoting a safe environment for individuals who are dealing with grief, as well as maintaining productivity during the process.
On-site presentations include the following topics: Supporting Each Other When a Co-worker Dies, The Myths of Grief, How to Support a Friend or Co-worker Who is Grieving, Guidelines for Managers and Supervisors on Supporting Grief, and the ABCs of Childrens Grief.
Northern Illinois Hospice and Grief Center has been providing counseling services to the community since 1994, offering both individual and group counseling to children, teens and adults.
