The impact of crisis on workplace mental health and business sustainability

December 7th, 2021 11:00-12:00PM

Pandemics, fires, heat waves, and floods.

Since the beginning of 2020, British Columbia has experienced an unprecedented series of disasters  – from a global pandemic to a record-breaking heatwave that resulted in hundreds of deaths, an extreme wildfire season, and now catastrophic flooding impacting homes, businesses, and transportation routes.

While these events have had immediate consequences of closures, lockdowns, and damage to infrastructure – the greater impact will be seen in the long terms effects on worker mental health. Research into previous disasters suggests that the human, social and business impact of these events can endure for months – if not years – after the initial crisis is over.

In this webinar you will learn

  • The impact of chronic stress on employees AND employers
  • How to recognize the symptoms of chronic stress in the workplace – they may not be what you think.
  • Tips to scale solutions for your small, medium, or large business to tackle workplace mental health and support your employees for a more sustainable business.
  • Strategies to reduce the risks to prevent or manage chronic mental stress.
