Responding to Bereaved Customers Quick Guide


This guide provides appropriate responses and questions to support customers who call to inform you of, or mention, the death of someone close.


Conversations about death can be difficult for both customers and employees. However, when death is mentioned, we must acknowledge it.


This point of reference guides empathic and appropriate responses to the information shared. It also advises employees to take a moment to regain their emotional resilience before the next customer call.


This is one of a Set of Quick Guides designed to help employees respond to customers experiencing vulnerable circumstances.
