About this event

As a result of COVID-19, we are preparing for the reentry of a new workforce that is managing both collective and individual grief. Yet, most companies are not ready to support their employees.

According to a study by the Grief Recovery Institute, 85% of workers said grief affected their productivity and decision-making abilities, and lost productivity and absenteeism related to grief costs employers $75-$100 billion annually.

Liz Eddy, Co-Founder and CEO of Lantern, an end of life planning service, will share step by step guidance for navigating life before and after a death. She’ll provide tips on:

  • How to create an inclusive and supportive culture around grief during and after COVID-19
  • Tools and language needed to create your own company plan to ensure that employees feel supported and prepared for what’s ahead
