We’re pleased to announce that our April’s guest speaker is sponsored by Employment Connections Work BC – Employment Services Centre.
Derek Sienko with Diversified Rehabilitation Group Inc. will be discussing The Cost Of Stress In The Workplace.
In today’s competitive economy, healthy organizations rely on engaged, productive, innovative, and loyal employees, making Workplace Health and Wellness more crucial to business success than ever.
The economic and human costs related to mental health and physical illnesses, disabilities or personal reasons in the workplace are staggering. All of these unplanned absences cost Canadian employers approximately $7.4 billion a year, which translates to an annual cost of $572.00 per employee – a figure that jumps to $1,700.00 per employee when looking at disability as a whole (Benefits Canada, August 2012).
A paradigm shift in workplace wellness that focuses on disease prevention and collaborative health and wellness intervention is an effective solution to business sustainability. The presentation will provide employers with practical tools and successful strategies to have psychologically and physically healthy workplaces with reduced absenteeism and reduced disability costs.
