Spotlight on You

Jen Fisher, Deloitte, was interviewed by the World Economic Forum in a piece titled The Rise of the Chief Well-being Officer and Why It Matters.

"I drive Deloitte’s strategy and innovation around well-being. It’s my job to empower all of our employees to be their best selves professionally and personally. Sometimes that means creating education programmes and resources to help our people learn the skills that will be critical in the future of work, like building relationships, managing change, and developing resilience," Fisher shared. "Sometimes it’s working with our network of leaders and sponsors to create and embed well-being strategies tailored to the unique challenges they’re facing in their businesses."

Carrie Oman, Booz Allen Hamilton, wrote an article on how companies can create environments that help, not hurt employee well-being while staving off burnout and building emotional transparency.

"When done right, leaders’ emotional transparency can kickstart an open, connected company culture. This includes holding town halls where leaders express their emotions openly and hold space for difficult conversations. It empowers employees to feel comfortable sharing opinions and solutions beneficial to the business and culture of the workplace."

Katie Stannard, Stantec, was interviewed on her role as a Mental Health First Aider at work and at home. 

"Mental health, whether good or bad, has such a big impact on how much energy we bring to work and take home with us. It affects our performance and our relationships with others. Everyone will experience poor mental health at some point in their life. Being an MHFA is important to me as it provides that visible, confidential support network to support others to seek the help they might need."

"From progressive fertility benefits that make reproductive services more accessible and affordable; to holistic time off benefits including up to six months of parental leave, and regular companywide days off to recharge together; to pay parity across gender and race, prioritizing the complete wellbeing of our employees has been essential to our growth and success."
