Grief and the Workplace
Dealing with grief and loss is an unfortunate event that can and does happen to us all when we least expect it. When the loss is a coworker, we often feel it should not effect us too much as the loss was not a family member. The truth is the loss of a coworker can effect us just as much as losing a loved one. Grief can be a complex emotional process that effects us each in a different way. It is important to understand the grieving process and how/where to access help.
