With hiring and turnover levels on the rise, employers are now experiencing challenges with both attracting and retaining employees, especially top performers and high-potential employees.
In the education sector, the need for employers to understand what keeps staff and faculty at work becomes even more important when rising trends of precarious employment, turnover, job dissatisfaction, etc. are considered. In Ontario, a staggering 93.3% of teachers feel that their training did not sufficiently prepare them to deal with mental health issues of their students. Additionally, 13% of teachers report being stressed “all the time” in comparison to 7% of the general public. Nearly half of all teachers leave their job within the first five years, many feeling that they were not given the right tools they needed to succeed on the job in general.
Promoting and protecting mental health of employees and providing them with meaningful accommodation when required is an evidence based strategy that employers can use to mitigate the risks and challenges listed above. This webinar will allow participants to learn about evidence based tools and resources employers can use to create mentally healthy educational environments for all.
