Lightbulb with mental health and other wellness words

Managing mental health in the workplace can be challenging for all employers. According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, 70% of employees have concerns with the psychological health and safety of their workplace. COVID-19 has only increased the focus on how to handle mental health challenges among working-aged people and has emphasized the importance of organizational commitment to support employees. With about 30% of all short- and long-term disability claims in Canada resulting from mental health challenges, not to mention the workers’ compensation claims, employers have become far more dedicated to support employee mental health[1]. Fortunately, ReedGroup has several resources available to help support employers and their employees with mental health management in the workplace.
