Many people spend more time at work than at home. Because we spend a lot of time with people at work, we may become close to them, like an extended family. When a colleague dies or one is grieving a death or a loss, the impact on his/her co-workers can be tremendous and can influence the workplace in a variety of ways. Often times, people don’t know what to say or do, fearing they will make the situation worse.
