Corporate Social Responsibility

You are here

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is fundamental to our business and central to our brand values. Our purpose “Improving lives. Improving business” is the foundation of our business strategy, which alongside our vision, guides us in everything we do. We also look to our values that define the way we interact with our clients, each other and our broader stakeholder community. Together, these elements define Morneau Shepell’s way of doing business, drive our strategy, and shape the framework of policies and guidelines, which set the standards for our behaviour, CSR programs and performance.

Employee wellbeing report

Employee wellbeing is critical to performance. A healthy and happy workforce is more productive, while a workforce facing mental health challenges less. In 2019, we began using our Total Wellbeing Assessment to measure the total wellbeing of our workforce, and with the launch of the Mental Health Index (MHI) in 2020, these new tools are helping us track and report the total wellbeing and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our people.
