dc.descriptionThis is a special report that reviews the research and applied literature on the topic of addiction and the Canadian workplace. It is written for a business audience. It is 34 pages long and printed in color.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe 2009 annual report tackles some of the myths and long-held beliefs about addictions and their impact on workplaces across Canada. We distill the key findings concerning addictions and present these in a manner that can lead to a clear understanding of the issues for HR/Benefits practitioners and other business leaders interested in contributing to building a healthy and safe workplace. In the tradition of previous reports, we review numerous empirical studies with an emphasis on Canadian data when available. We offer this report to our customers and other key stakeholders in an effort to bring the most current and empirically validated perspectives to this very important issue. Our hope is that this report will assist you by summarizing key elements on addictions which may prompt you to take action such as creating or updating a substance use policy, initiating an awareness campaign at all levels of your organization, or providing information about available support services.en_US
