Area of Interest: Benefits Format: Web

This Online Webinar is hosted by CPBI Ontario

From menstruation to menopause, family planning and beyond, women* face unique health challenges that are often misunderstood or overlooked in the workplace. Investing in the health and wellness of women fosters a culture of caring and can have numerous positive effects, both for the individuals and the organization. Some key benefits are improved employee morale, positive impacts on mental health, increased productivity, better work-life balance, minimized absenteeism and support for recruitment and retention. 

Key takeaways from this webinar session include:
  • Benefit strategies for a range of unique health issues to support greater access to care both for employees and organizational success
  • The role of employers in contributing to better health outcomes for women at work
  • Ways to re-think gender in benefits and embrace impact and belonging

*We acknowledge this topic applies to many individuals beyond the gender identity of "Woman". Alongside women, those who need this type of care have many varied and diverse gender identities.
