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 and Aongola Victor Simuyemba, Bereavements Lead at Monzo.
