Society or the Culture of Business?

The other day, a co-worker was telling me how my employer used to have someone attend the funerals of employees who had lost a family member (immediate family), without exception. However, they no longer do that.

Basically, it is at a supervisor's discretion, as to whether or not they attend the funeral.

I am pretty confident, that my employer is not the only one that follows that kind of policy.

My question is, is that more a reflection of society or of the culture of business?
