Stress and Mental Illness at Work

Stress and Mental Illness in the Workplace is growing at an alarming rate. There have been three recent studies on this situation:

  • Burnout is now included as an occupational phenomenon.

  • 35% of employees took a break from work because of a death, divorce or other personal situation of a loved one.

  • 1 in 5 Canadians suffer from mental stress and it is now the major cause of disability claims.

  • 84% of respondents said a flexible job situation would help them better manage anxiety.

Ask yourself some questions:

  • Are we aware of our employees issues in this area?

  • Is our benefit package meeting this growing need?

  • Is it time to adjust for our paramedical and counselling needs?

  • Should we be looking at a Health Spending Account as a supplement to our benefit plan?

  • Is our LTD benefit going to deliver?

  • Will an EAP plan address this area?
