"The impact of grief in the workplace"

In our working life, there is an unwritten rule that we need to return to work shortly after one of our loved ones has passed away. This often conflicts with the emotions we feel, which has a negative effect on both our healing process and our productivity at work. Expert by experience Marrit van Exel lost her husband (47) and daughter (32) and has a clear view on how companies should cope with mourning employees. She advocates a statutory right to bereavement leave for employees.
