Media advisory - Morneau Shepell to announce global research at 9th annual workplace mental health summit in Edmonton

Employers Connect 2020 will present new research on workplace mental health trends in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom

EDMONTON, Jan. 23, 2020 /CNW/ - Compensation is no longer the main factor for Canadian employers to consider when attracting and retaining employees. Morneau Shepell is pleased to release new research findings that show better support for well-being has risen above compensation as the most important factor Canadian employees consider in the workplace. In its global survey on workplace mental health, the company also found that employers were more likely to see improvement in workplace collaboration when organizations supported employee mental health.

At Employers Connect 2020, Morneau Shepell will reveal its in-depth research findings on workplace mental health. For the first time, the research has been expanded to include employees in the United States and United Kingdom, as well as Canada. At the events occurring across Canada, Morneau Shepell will highlight trends in workplace mental health across geographies, and leading Canadian employers will share their insights on how organizations can support their employees' overall well-being.

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