How to talk about death at work
11.30am, Thursday 11th May 2023
By talking with those around you, you can help your workplace support colleagues who are ill, caring for those around them, or who have lost someone close to them. But where to start? What practical things can you and your workplace do to help start these conversations at work?
This webinar will provide you and your colleagues with practical advice, tips and tricks on how to start workplace conversations on this often taboo subject.
Hosted by our Compassionate Employers programme, you’ll hear from Simon Blake, CEO Mental Health First Aid England, Aongola Victor Simuyemba, Bereavements Lead at Monzo and Faith Holloway, Compassionate Employers Programme Lead at Hospice UK.
Why not share with the rest of your organisation as a way to mark Dying Matters Awareness Week?
