* U.S. Business and Organizations Lose Over $100 Billion Dollars in Annual Revenue Due to Bereavement and Personal Grief Issues in the Workplace *

Employee Assistance Programs * Special Attention *

The Workforce Capital Recovery Program is not similar, nor intended to replace an EAP. This program is not for the employee...instead, it is for the leadership of the business or organization. The employee may take the opportunity to seek mental health support on a weekly, monthly, or even more infrequent basis, but he or she will be in the workplace each day. They need you, the leadership, to understand that your greatest assets do not "Just Get Over It" once they seek outside help. They will be influenced each workday by superiors, peers, customers and more! This program is "Leadership" training in managing the grieving employee.

"I lost my son last year and returned to work in about ten days. You were right that people look okay but they are not. Others at work don't want to grieve with you, so I really did not have much support. I just sit at my desk and cry, but just keep going."

R. Glenn's Book
The Griefcase r. glenn kelly site image

"I hear it from business leaders all the time...'We have an Employee Assistance Program, so we are already helping.' They have no idea how much coming to work every day impacts someone living with grief. Work used to be a safe place...once as safe as home."

Those at work, including management and peers, do not go home with you at the end of the day. They do not live the new life you unwillingly live now. They do not experience the unwanted change in what was once normal for you. For them, nothing at home or at work will be different than their previous day’s version of normal. Eventually, since they are not directly affected by it, your loss will fade in their minds. So will the idea that you could still be experiencing the incredible pain. It is not their fault, actually. After all, you are moving forward through the grief, processing the emotions and from all observations, appear to be fully functional again and doing well. Excerpt from R. Glenn Kelly's Book; "The Griefcase"



"Let your spirit soar"

R. Glenn has been "through the fire" of traumatic loss. His mission now is to inspire hope and healing through the experience and expertise gained after the passing of his son, Jonathan. He seeks to have others embrace the understanding of the impacts in which grief has in all areas of life for those who experience traumatic events. Grief oftentimes brings on despondency, or the feeling of giving up! With support, the griever can move forward with properly trained support by those he or she spends more awake time with than those at home...the people at work. R. Glenn will inspire your leaders to build trusting relationships, decrease cost and injuries, and increase productivity through his motivational keynotes and the Workforce Capital Recovery Program.

R. Glenn imparts the experience of being a former business executive and a bereaved father to provide awareness that grief is not just about the loss of a loved one. Employees can also experience profound grief after an unwanted divorce, a major change to personal health, a grown child leaving the nest, and along with so many other events, the death of a company leader. Each of these can have a negative influence on work, productivity, and the bottom line.

Take action by enlisting R. Glenn Kelly to train your leadership in instinctively recognizing, managing, and thereby reducing the negative possibilities of grief and personal crisis in the workplace. Your employees deserve to live a life of peace and does your business or organization!
