The case for extending the 3-day bereavement leave
from HR DIVE
Workers value empathy in their employers, and extending bereavement time demonstrates that organizations understand workers' needs during times of crisis. Empathy coming from the top also drives engagement, performance and retention. Traditionally, employee assistance programs have been the resource employers turn to to help workers cope with the loss of a loved one, addictions and other stress-related problems. Employers can still find EAPs to be an invaluable extension of their support for workers.
