What Workplace Investigators Should Know…
Have you ever dealt with, or suspected issues of mental health in your investigations? We are now seeing it more frequently and mental health is impacting Canadians like never before, thanks to the pandemic.
In November 2020, 92% of employees reporting feelings of burnout. It’s currently the leading cause of long-term disability claims for Canadian employers and costs our economy over 51 billion dollars annually. Some experts say that at the rate we are currently going with depression being the leading cause of long-term disability world-wide for men, we will see things reach a crisis if we don’t learn better ways to identify signs of struggle. Especially as our workplaces start opening up again, and people start returning to work, we undoubtedly will see the impacts in the workplace and in our investigations.
