What does a mentally healthy workplace look like? Imagine your organization as we paint the picture: Employees are engaged and passionate about their jobs, often surpassing expectations and productivity markers set by management. Management, staff and all other players motivate one another and enjoy satisfying, reciprocal professional relationships. Sick time and disability claims are at an all-time low. Employee retention rates are excellent, and your organization functions like a well-oiled machine. Morale and employee satisfaction are so exceptional that your organization develops a stellar reputation which results in more qualified candidates when job opportunities arise. Your organization thrives because when mental health is valued and prioritized, the domino effects are endless.
The Mentally Healthy Workplace equips managers, human resource professionals, health and safety coordinators and other employee wellness champions with the necessary tools to promote workplace wellness. Mental health issues account for about one third of all disability claims in Canadian workplaces, and 70% of the total costs. In addition to the impact of absenteeism, many organizations are experiencing diminished productivity and other effects of “presenteeism”—employees being physically present at work but functioning below their capacity due to mental distress. Employers have a duty to make reasonable accommodations for health conditions whether physical or mental in nature but offering support and implementing accommodations can be complex when it comes to mental health concerns.
Participants will enjoy the same high-quality experience in our virtual classroom that they've come to expect from our in-person sessions. Delivered by a real-time facilitator, this program includes small group work, class discussion, participant workbooks and attendance certificates, just like our physical classroom sessions.
This three hour seminar is open to anyone interested in learning more about workplace wellness. Developed and delivered by Elizabeth Eldridge, Founder/Director of Arpeggio Health Services and Certified Psychological Health & Safety Advisor, this valuable professional development opportunity is one you don't want to miss!
