After a brief hiatus, Benefits Canada’s long-standing Healthy Outcomes Conference returned as an in-person event designed for employers to exchange ideas and best practices for achieving improved employee health outcomes.
Nearly 85 employers gathered at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto on Oct. 18 to hear from several panels discussing themes that are currently top of mind, including: the evolution of mental-health strategies; the role of diversity, equity and inclusion in employee well-being; linking data and disability in wellness programs; communications during the coronavirus pandemic; attraction and retention efforts amid the ‘Great Resignation;’ and the connection between mental health and financial wellness.
