Abstract

Considers the psychological and physiological reactions to bereavement. Argues that the workplace counsellor is ideally placed to offer help and reduce the intensity and duration of reactions to bereavement, and that this response is likely to yield benefits in employee relations and ultimately profitability. Concludes that reactions to death are culturally located, and that appropriate responses from the workplace can reduce the cost to organisations considerable for a small outlay.
