Excessive stress, as well as other mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, are estimated to cost the Canadian economy 33 billion dollars each year in lost productivity. Fortunately, there a number of things that can be done in the workplace to not only help people achieve better work-life balance and manage stress, but also increase workplace productivity and ultimately improve the bottom line.

Join Dr. Steven Stein, psychologist and CEO, as he discusses the findings from his new book, Make Your Workplace Great: The 7 Keys to an Emotionally Intelligent Organization. Based on surveys with over 2,000 people in a variety of organizations, seven areas are identified that you can focus on in improving your work environment, including Work/Life Stress Management.

This talk will focus on concrete steps you can take to increase employee engagement and overall productivity of your organization. Each participant will receive a copy of Dr. Stein's new book, as well as booklets by The Psychology Foundation of Canada called, Managing to Manage Workplace Stress and The Struggle to Juggle: Top Stress Management Strategies for You and Your Family.
