The person I support told me their grandparent passed. We work rather close and I’m not sure how to show comfort or support during this time. Obviously I shared my condolences but that’s so basic to me. This person has been an amazing teammate to me and always speaks very highly of me when I’m not in the room, I very much appreciate him as my colleague. What are some other things I can do? I work remote

You can send them a small care package, maybe a personalized card.


Yes, Send something personalized that you know will brighten their day. Maybe something they mentioned that they enjoy or even something you find comforting that you would receive from your grandparents.

Fruit basket, food, care package, Uber eats (or similar) gift card. Anything that might help their day go by easier and show you are thinking of them.

If he's religious a mass card or something of the like would be nice.

Normally I’d just keep them on and work on it alongside other goals, but they don’t have any other goals, and with COVID, and my upcoming maternity leave in March, a more compact caseload would be advantageous.

Are any digital agencies forcing employees to return to the office yet, or has the industry, being digital-oriented, bucked the trend?
