Benefits Canada Live: Overall health: The key to employee well-being during and after the pandemic

The coronavirus has seriously shaken things up for Canadians, both in their professional and personal lives. This new normal, for many of us, means working from home and homeschooling. With people reluctant to go to the hospital, an increase in health problems is expected, which organizations and insurers will have to address and adapt to. What health problems are being talked about, exactly? How can employees take care of their employees from a distance? Is financial stress on the rise? Are compassion and caring now central to the employer-employee relationship? This webinar explored how overall wellness, which includes physical, mental and financial health, is especially important during a crisis – and how going forward, this wellness culture will be an integral part of group plans.
