This special 60-minute webinar addresses the impact of work overload on employee health and productivity. With more than half of Canadian employees (54 per cent) having more work to do than they can accomplish in the work day and having important demands at home, which can include childcare and eldercare, many employees are overloaded, overwhelmed and underperforming. The time is now to better educate employers on the challenges and help them to support a better work-life balance for their employees.
