A study of Canadian companies reveals a clear positive ROI for workplace mental health programs—and points the way forward for companies seeking to invest in workers’ mental health.
Executive summary: A positive ROI on mental health investments is well within reach for Canadian employers
POOR mental health among the workforce imposes tremendous costs on Canadian employers. Yet barriers to investment in workplace mental health remain, including a lack of knowledge of best practices, as well as a lack of evidence that such investments can have a positive impact on the bottom line.1 To overcome these barriers, Canadian employers require real-world evidence that workplace mental health programs are an investment that yields valuable returns, rather than a cost. This study, the first of its kind conducted within the Canadian context, provides such evidence.
