Webinar: Workplace Mental Health Matters
Organizations that have not implemented the National Standard on Psychological Health and Safety have higher absenteeism. According to the Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace, employees in these organizations who have experienced depression miss 5.1 days more than employees who work at an organization with the Standard in place.
