These include workshop materials, accommodation tools and resilience building resources. For reports and research findings, check out our initiatives page.

Accommodation:

Supporting Employee Success

A tool that helps inform the development of an effective workplace plan between the employer and employee. It can be used on its own, or as part of an existing approach to support an employee’s accommodation need.


Conflict:

Resolving conflict workshop
Workshop materials to help preserve the dignity of all parties, avoid forced and insincere apologies, increase commitment to improve relationships and develop a process for accountability.


Employee resources:

Plan for resilience

This resource can help improve your ability to bounce back after a potential health, personal, or work crisis. It will help you identify effective strategies and resources to draw on when needed.

Retiring well

A series of questions to help you proactively plan for the quality of life you desire in retirement.

Working through it

Videos of employees who experienced mental health issues tell their stories and provide strategies, tips and advice to help others that may be experiencing mental health issues.

Emotional intelligence
Workshop materials to help understand your own emotional triggers, explore the functions of emotions, reflect on when behaviours are a symptom of emotions and respond more effectively to the emotions of others.

Learning to recharge
Just doing one more thing or pushing through may seem like a good work strategy, but in fact, when our energy is depleted, our focus and productivity will go down. This means that we have to work harder and longer to get the same results that we would have had if we took the time to recharge.


Inclusivity:

Implicit bias workshop
Workshop materials to recognize mental health issues, support those who are struggling and manage our own mental health.
