Unum bereavementUnum is launching a bereavement toolkit to help employers manage workplace bereavement.

Launched in partnership with St Catherine’s Hospice, the interactive tool comprises a series of videos, quizzes and factsheets aimed at line managers and covers topics including: Working through bereavement; Bereavement in the workplace; Supporting a bereaved colleague; and Support if a colleague dies. The site offers information on the effects of grief and bereavement and the impact this may have on employees’ work.

The toolkit also provides advice on understanding challenges a bereaved colleague will face and dealing with practicalities. The bereavement toolkit can be viewed at www.unum.co.uk/bereavement.
