According to Statistics Canada more than 3,400,000 Canadian workers feel burned out. Burnout is a psychological response to hazards. This webinar will explore the workplace factors which have the potential to cause the mental harm leading to burnout. Additionally, we will be discussing what we can do to eliminate or control the hazards which have the potential to result in burnout.
Join Dr. Ash Bender as he discusses the intersection between mental stress, illness and resilience and provides some specific actions workplaces can take to build resiliency.
