This webinar presentation will describe workplace strategies to aid in supporting employees with depression in the workplace.
Researchers from the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) collaborated with a stakeholder advisory group to create an easy-to-use free resource for workplaces. The project drew on a review of the published research as well as employer and worker experiences gathered through an online survey, interviews, and focus groups, administered across Canada. Data about current workplace practices and experiences, providing current practice evidence, was combined with the research evidence to provide a comprehensive view of the available evidence.
The presentation will cover workplace culture, workplace processes, resources (workplace and non-workplace) as well as actionable steps workplaces can utilize to better support employees who may be experiencing depression.
