A NEW service for employers to help ease a grieving employee’s transition back to work.

You care about your people. Now you can provide the resources, transition support and hope bereaved employees need before returning to work after the death of a child. At a time when productivity and confidence break down, Hope Works Here can help you take a proactive approach with a grieving employee that yields benefit for everyone in the workplace.

Restore confidence for employees, managers and teams

The help that creates hope.

The return to work after the death of a child can be a source of anxiety for any grieving parent. Experiences often vary based on the company, its size, its policies and history. People don’t know what to say, colleagues don’t know how to act and supervisors often don’t have the tools to ease the transition and mitigate economic losses associated with grief.

Hope Works Here is a tool to support the HR role. When an employee experiences the death of a child, HR can engage the Hope Works Here service to bring in qualified providers experienced in working with grieving parents. The Hope Works Here transition coaches are licensed mental health professionals who specialize in different areas of child loss. Coaches are assigned based on the type of loss, and neither the employer nor the employee needs to worry about finding the right fit. We've got it covered.
