The Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) has today (March 13th) launched an innovative resource pack aimed at helping managers and workers to support their colleagues affected by bereavement in the Irish workplace each year.
In Ireland, it’s estimated that one in 10 of the Irish workforce each year can be directly affected by bereavement, amounting to over 190,000 workers.
Grief at work
An initiative of the IHF, the resource pack has been a collaborative project between employers, unions and representative bodies. It is made up of six Information Sheets which are simple, easy to use guides on topics such as “How to Deliver Bad News” and “What to Say” and these can be downloaded free of charge HERE
The project has been developed by the IHF with the help of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), The Health and Safety Authority (HSA), Irish Business & Employers Confederation (Ibec), Irish Small & Medium Enterprises Association (ISME), The Wheel, Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA), Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD), Small Firms Association (SFA) and the Irish Management Institute (IMI).
