Dying Matters

Talking about dying isn’t easy. That’s why we are supporting Dying Matters Awareness Week to encourage everyone to get talking in a way which works for them. Dying Matters is a campaign run by the charity, Hospice UK.

This year, Dying Matters Awareness Week 2023 is focusing on Dying Matters at work.

| Dying Matters at Work

“57% of employees will have experienced a bereavement in the last five years and every day, more than 600 people quit work to look after older and disabled relatives. And yet, fewer than one in five managers feel very confident supporting someone they manage with a bereavement.” – Dying Matters Awareness.

By communicating with colleagues and friends, those going through a difficult time in the workplace can be seen and supported.

Hospice UK suggests 6 talking points to help your conversation surrounding death.

  • Listening attentively
  • Being observant
  • Managing silence
  • Respecting emotions
  • Considering perspectives.

If you would like advice on how to better support your employees through grievances and other sensitive subjects, our employment and HR team are here to help. Call us on 0800 988 7756 or email here.
