Facilitating a Safe and Respectful Workplace

Despite the compelling evidence, not all employers are fully engaged in preventing harassment (including bullying and sexual harassment) and workplace violence. Even among those that are engaged, there is no globally accepted and evidence-based preventive solution. One factor that can predict the degree of risk and prevalence of harassment and violence in a workplace is incivility. And while incivility plays a role in predicting harassment and violence, the benefits of creating strategies and programs focused on curbing incivility have been given less attention.

Creating Better Workplaces Through Storytelling

First, what do we mean by stories? How do we create them? How do we make them have meaning? With the help from Jordan Bower, Marissa Korda, and Jean-François Claude; we will understand what makes a compelling story and why you need more storytelling in your organization.

During this webinar, Jordan Bower will answer your questions on what storytelling really is, how to create more of them, and how to make them have impact into everyday operations. Storytelling helps us accomplish two goals within an organization. First, we can use storytelling as a tactic to make our presentations, reports, Powerpoint decks, emails and one-on-one conversations more engaging, convincing and meaningful. Second, we can use storytelling as a strategy to define the overarching narrative around any project, team, organization, or change initiative. By combining these approaches, we can create clear, engaging and meaningful communications that motivate people with the why behind any message.

Leading a Culture of Safety: From Learning to Practice

Legislation requires organizations to comply with Occupational Health and Safety Acts and regulations, however organizations must go above and beyond to create a positive safety culture to ensure the safety of its workforce. Attitudes, values, and beliefs of an organization and its employees can enhance safety culture or act as a barrier towards safety programming.

Many leading companies in the manufacturing, mining, chemical and nuclear industries have implemented safety cultures and have seen positive impacts including employee productivity, as well as improved product quality. For organizations looking to enhance their safety culture, some struggle on how to define, assess, and mobilize change. This session includes a broad perspective with representation by safety professionals, industry leaders, and academia in advancing safety culture in Canada.

This webinar is made available to you in partnership with Minerva Canada, a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to advancing Health and Safety education in post secondary institutions, The Conference Board of Canada’s Health and Safety Leadership Centre, and Workplace Safety & Prevention Services.

Designing for Wellbeing: Promoting Healthy Community Living Through Design

We may be living longer, but are we living better? In 2017, Canada spent an estimated $242 billion on health care. Health and well-being are two factors that can impact quality of life. Well-being is a complex concept because it is influenced by myriad social, environmental, economic, cultural, and political factors. Across all, reduced access to resources or exposure to adverse challenges can compromise individual well-being.

Increasing interest among stakeholders is impacting design decisions that foster health, vitality, and wellbeing. Indeed, the design of our built environment impacts our health and wellbeing, with potentially long-term consequences on quality of life.

Research has established clear connections between the built environment and aspects of health and wellness. To support well-being and promote healthier lifestyle choices, community design features can be used to encourage individuals to engage in physical activity, adopt prosocial behaviour, and eat nutritious food.

To provide insight into how the built environment influences well-being, The Conference Board of Canada partnered with DIALOG to publish Community Wellbeing: A Framework for the Design Professions. The goal of this work was to create a framework that design professionals, including urban planners, architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and engineers, could use to understand and leverage this thinking into their work from conception to evaluation.

Health Care Aware: Understanding Pharmaceutical Costs and Pricing Webinar

The retail price paid for pharmaceuticals is a result of several different inputs, few of which are well understood by consumers. Pharmacy mark-ups are especially elusive, as they can vary across several variables such as location (i.e. the province and territory where the drug is dispensed), drug coverage under public or private insurance, cash paying without coverage or whether the drug is considered a specialty medication.

The Benefits of Early Optimized Treatment for Depression

With workplace mental health and wellness receiving increased attention, there has been interest in examining the effects of early treatment for patients with depression. There is a body of evidence that points to early optimized treatment providing the greatest opportunity for achieving full functional recovery.

Unfortunately, there are many stages at which a person with depression can experience a delay in receiving optimal treatment. These begin even before encountering the health system as many people do not seek treatment for depression at all. When they do, depression severity can also have an impact on the treatment they receive. And even if a minimally adequate level of treatment is received, many individuals fail to achieve adequate response or subsequently relapse.

This 60-recorded webinar with Greg Sutherland explores the potential economic benefits of overcoming some of these obstacles.
