Are mentally healthy employees more productive?

Employers need to focus on the relationship between mental health and productivity moving forward, explained Bill Morneau, executive chairman of Morneau Shepell, at the company’s annual Employers Connect event. “The stigmas and stereotypes associated with mental health—and the barriers to action in this regard—really have no place in business,” he noted. “Not only is it the right thing to do morally, to focus on how you get rid of these stigmas, but it’s absolutely critical if we want a productive workforce going forward in Canada.”
