Caring Connections - It's About How You LIVE - At Work

"Cedar Valley Hospice has always been a great partner to Tyson and a wonderful organization within the community. They are willing to visit our plant and provide information to employees, send supportive tips for a “sympathy & caring” board in our main hallway, and are available as an on-going resource for crisis situations and those struggling with grief and loss. The staff at Cedar Valley Hospice easily connects with the Tyson chaplains and community liaison providing necessary compassion, support and information when needed."

It’s About How You LIVE – At Work is a program to help employers support employees who are:

  • Working caregivers
  • Experiencing grief and loss

Through our Caring Connections program, we can provide presentations, lunch-n-learns, and training for your staff at no cost to your business to help support your employees and improve productivity. Each program is customized to your needs. We also offer educational materials at no cost.
