Grief isn’t easily disguised and can impact productivity in the workplace when a tragic event occurs. Employees can demonstrate an inability to concentrate, struggle with fatigue, be indecisive or short-tempered. While employers want to demonstrate compassion to their employees, they still must get the job done. What can we do when grief can’t be left at home from 9-5?
Jessica acts as a consultant to employers, offering support targeted specifically toward workplace issues. Allowing space for employees to discuss their experience can assist with regaining balance in the workplace. As an expert in the field of grief, Jessica can tell you that time alone won’t change the environment. Allow Jessica to come in, and do what she does best, for you to go back to doing what you do best.
