There are many reasons why diversity in the workplace is something we actively seek to build. By definition, a diverse workforce encompasses the individuals protected by the Canadian Human Rights Act. In force since 1977, the act ensures equal opportunity to workers in Canada regardless of race, sex, gender identity, marital status, religious belief, disability and age.

If you’re looking around and noticing a lot of clutter in the workspace, it may be time for some spring cleaning in the office. A messy workplace can contribute to stress and anxiety and negatively affect the productivity of your employees.
Here are some things to think about when encouraging spring cleaning in your office.
Working at a desk all day can be notoriously stressful. Hours spent inside, surrounded by computers, phones, and man-made everything can lead to “technostress” and burnout.

Are you familiar with that weary feeling of a long commute?
You’ve been on the road since 6:30 a.m. You’ve already listened to two episodes of CANADALAND; the paper cup sitting in the centre console now outweighs the liquid inside—and you’re still 15 minutes from the office.

If you want to retain an engaged, hardworking team, learning how to make employees feel valued is an absolute must. Not only do staff who feel appreciated work harder and take more ownership of their work, they are also more loyal and tend to stay with their company for longer.
With the arrival of warmer weather, the last thing we want to do is be stuck with a cold. While colds peak during the fall, spring ushers in a second peak season for common colds. Experts cite several factors at play for this second seasonal spike.
Bright skies, warm weather, blooming flowers. For many of us, spring is a great time of year. But for those who suffer from hay fever, it signals that some uncomfortable symptoms—a runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes—are about to arrive.
Sleep is often underrated. But whether you realize it or not, Canada is experiencing a sleep epidemic.
In fact, we are the third most sleep deprived nation in the world, on par with the US (source).
And lack of sleep strongly correlates with low productivity. If your employees are sleep deprived, your business can take a hit—as much as $3,156 per employee annually (source).
