Abstract (summary)

Employee grief in the workplace as it relates to organizational behavior and emotion in the workplace continues to gain attention in organizational studies (Frost et al., 2006). The purpose of this phenomenological, qualitative study was to explore the perceptions, assumptions, and beliefs of bereaved healthcare employees regarding organizational effectiveness in facilitating productivity during the employees’ grief recovery period. Five core themes emerged from this study: (a) organizational culture, (b) organizational communication, (c) organizational policy, (d) organizational process, and (e) immediate management. The impact of evaluating an organization’s culture, policies, processes, communication’s strategies, and management abilities in the area of employee grief may improve the organizational effectiveness in coping with employee grief in the workplace.
