Workplace Wellness Training

There is a disconnect at times between employers and employees; the business expectations can cause increased stress levels for employees, which can have a detrimental effect on productivity. According to a recent study by Mental Health Commission of Canada, “82% of responding organizations ranked mental health conditions in their top three causes of short term disability (72% for long-term)”.

This leaves employers with heavier burdens of meeting deadlines and dealing with claims, while employees continue to feel the pressures of meeting deadlines when they return.

Hong Fook provides a workplace wellness training workshop for employees, geared towards helping companies learn about building a positive environment, which in return, promotes a healthier and happier response from employees. These workshops are designed to bridge the gap between employers and employees; through group discussions, role play, case studies, information seminars, employers and employees learn about how to deal with stress, emotions, and depression. In turn, the goals are to reduce sick days, stress days, leave of absence, stronger collaboration, mutual respect, and increased productivity.

So far, we have been receiving such training requests from both non-profit agencies, like COSTI, Job Skills, and businesses, such as banks and large restaurants.
