Training Event Objectives:
• Mental Health in the Workplace
Mental health is the single largest issue in Canada’s workplaces. Did you know 35% of all sick days are due to mental health issues? We can no longer afford to ignore the facts. This training focuses on what is real as opposed to what is stigma, and provides you the tools to address challenges in your workplace.
• Hiring and Retaining Diverse Employees
This detailed module is specifically aimed at those decision makers who employ and engage staff of all backgrounds. From identifying “the hidden barrier” to inclusive orientation, this module is for anyone who is ready to create a workplace that truly reflects our diverse community.
