MEDIA ADVISORY - Morneau Shepell to announce new research findings at its 6th annual workplace mental health summit in Edmonton

Feb 8, 2017

Employers Connect 2017 will reveal findings on workplace mental health on February 15

EDMONTON, Feb. 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Canadian employers are increasingly aware of the importance of managing employee stress and mental health. Morneau Shepell's latest survey on workplace mental health found that there is an increased likelihood for employees to take sick leave following an organizational change, such as job re-design, team restructuring or downsizing/layoffs.

At the Edmonton Employers Connect event, Morneau Shepell will reveal its in-depth research findings. The Company along with a representative of a large employer in the province and a guest Olympian will also share insights on how organizations can best manage workplace stress and support employee mental health.

Morneau Shepell invites members of the media to attend Employers Connect to hear the new research in person.
