This briefing, based on a national survey, highlights the prevalence and impact of depression in the workplace, and provides insights from both employees and supervisors.
Depression in the Workplace provides a national perspective on the prevalence of depression in the workplace and the impact on employees’ work abilities. The briefing highlights the perspectives of both employees and supervisors, and provides insight into how employers can best support these employees. The research is based on a national survey—conducted by The Conference Board of Canada in February and March 2013—of 2,004 individuals currently employed on either a part-time or full-time basis, including 727 front-line managers who supervise or manage other people in the workplace. It focused on employees who had taken a leave of absence from work due to a depressive episode and asked about difficulties with specific cognitive abilities upon their return to work. The briefing provides managers and executives with insight on recognition of mental health issues and provision of appropriate resources and support to an employee in need.
