On April 7, the Windsor Essex County Health Unit (WECHU), in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association - Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB) and Family Services Windsor-Essex (FSWE), invited local employers from all industries and sectors to participate in a survey to learn more about the mental health experiences and needs of the Windsor-Essex County (WEC) workforce. To date, more than 700 employees from nearly 40 local workplaces representing a variety of occupational sectors have participated in this survey.
If you are an employer who would like to participate in this survey, it is not too late. Please opt-in by May 31st as the survey is closing soon. The WECHU especially encourages employers from the manufacturing, construction, transportation, agriculture, hospitality, and retail sectors to participate.
After opting in, the WECHU will help your organization invite employees to complete the survey. Employees can complete the survey online, using a computer, cell phone, or by paper-and-pencil format.
Why should your organization participate?
Every week, at least 500,000 Canadians miss work due to an issue related to their mental health, and 91% of employees who work at companies that support well-being say they feel motivated to do their best.
The Workplace Mental Health Survey provides employers with the opportunity to learn about the wellness strengths and needs of their workforce. Participating organizations will receive a customized report that includes tailored resource recommendations to help support workplace wellness.
Interested employees and employers can visit the WECHU’s website at www.wechu.org/mh-employer-survey to enroll or learn more about the project.
