Summary: There was tremendous need before COVID-19 to deal with benefits, programs, and culture changes to address workplace mental health concerns. The pandemic has only exacerbated these concerns. A recent study revealed that nearly 70% of employees say the coronavirus pandemic is the most stressful time of their entire career. What are the implications of this for organizations today? Dr. Ryan Todd, Psychiatrist and CEO of headversity, will cover the impacts of stress on today’s workforce, why organizations should care about resilience in their workforce, and how resilience can help mitigate the negative effects of stress and improve organizational outcomes.
Speaker: Ryan Todd, M.D. FRCPC
