Morneau Shepell to announce new research findings at its 8th annual workplace mental health summit in Halifax

Employers Connect 2019 will be held in eight cities across the country

HALIFAX, Jan. 23, 2019 /CNW/ - Employees report higher stress and greater isolation than five years ago. Morneau Shepell's latest survey on workplace mental health found that although workplace stigma regarding mental health has decreased, it remains prevalent. Still, improved workplace approaches to mental health are positively impacting employees who agree their organization creates an environment that supports mental wellness on the job.

At Employers Connect, Morneau Shepell will reveal its in-depth research findings and share insights from leading Canadian employers and an Olympian on how organizations can support their employees' overall well-being, including physical, mental, social and financial wellness.

Morneau Shepell invites members of the media to attend Employers Connect and be among the first to hear the new research.
