Media advisory – Now what? Business summit addresses employee mental health crisis and pandemic-related challenges

LifeWorks shares employee mental health research at 11th annual Employers Connect event in Canada

Canadians’ mental health has been deeply impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the continued societal and economic volatility over the past year. It has affected personal relationships, work, and the long-term outlook on overall mental health. LifeWorks has tracked these insights through its monthly Mental Health Index™.

At Employers Connect 2022, LifeWorks will delve into the data to showcase the trends uncovered over the past year and to explore how pandemic-related workplace challenges are not going away, culminating in one big question, now what? A range of panellists will share their expertise to discuss where we can go from here in regard to workplace mental health and will share what actions they have taken to address the continuous and growing need for support.

LifeWorks invites members of the media to attend Employers Connect.
