Today the MHCC launched a summary report, A Clear Business Case for Hiring Aspiring Workers that suggests opening the doors to aspiring workers living with mental illness is a win-win for employers and employees.
The report summarizes an in-depth MHCC research study that examined the costs and benefits of recruiting and retaining people living with mental illness. Researchers followed the experience of select employees at five organizations, chronicling how both employer and employee can benefit financially and socially from hiring and accommodating the needs of aspiring workers. By making small investments to accommodate workers and using blueprints like the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, employers can build an inclusive workplace culture that values aspiring workers.
