Caring Conversations in the Workplace - KCP&L Offers New Employee Benefit
You have a high-performing baby boomer employee who’s been with your company for years. But something’s changed. Maybe the employee has an aging parent who’s been in and out of the hospital. Maybe the employee was recently diagnosed with a serious illness. Maybe they’re facing some tough healthcare decisions with no clear right answers.
Now, a group of KCP&L employees have somewhere to turn for consultation and advocacy when they or a loved one experiences advanced illness. And, they have opportunities to learn about advance care planning and why it is critical to name someone to speak for them if they cannot speak for themselves.
“I think this is a very good program – I’ve already started talking with my family,” said an employee with Hallmark, which has offered Caring Conversations in the Workplace to its employees for the past six years.
