Supporting your workplace after a traumatic incident

There’s no such thing as “business as usual” after a tragedy. An accident, a natural disaster, an employee death—they can take an emotional toll. And that means work may take more time while people try to cope.

As an employer or manager, you face your own difficult task. How do you support your employees’ emotional needs and still get the job done? And how do you take care of yourself in the process? Your leadership can help employees return to their normal daily routines, personally and professionally.
