The business case for accommodating people with mental illness at work

Presented by Rebecca Gewurtz and Emile Tompa

Developing the business case to support the value of inclusion can help occupational therapists working with employers identify the costs, benefits and potential strategies to improve their capacity to hire and retain diverse workers, including people with mental illness.

This webinar will share case studies incorporating qualitative and economic data from interviews with accommodated workers, coworkers, supervisors/managers in five Canadian organizations focused on accommodating and supporting workers with mental illness. These cases will highlight the costs and benefits of accommodating workers with mental illness, as well low-cost strategies that can help organizations better meet the needs of diverse workers.

  1. Describe the costs and benefits of accommodating and supporting workers with mental illness.

  2. Identify low cost strategies to increase inclusion of diverse workers within the workplaces.

  3. Identify opportunities for occupational therapists to facilitate improvements in workplace policies, programs and practices to increase employer capacity for hiring and accommodating diverse workers.
