Medical practitioners have shared their concern regarding people feeling depressed at their workplace, they claim that it is an important and perhaps a growing problem. Furthermore, it was implied that even the employers cannot play any role in making the situation better by doing something for their employees.
The CEO and President of the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, Steve Horvath, stated that "It’s a difficult challenge for employers because, ultimately, they're going to have to address the issues of their own organization's culture." He also indentified that "there's the other aspect of creating more resiliency in the workforce" in general.
The previous survey, conducted by the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace, published a result which showed that 84 per cent of employers and managers claim that they believe it is part of one’s job to interfere when they feel an employee is exhibiting signs of depression. However, a 63 per cent had a conclusive view stating that they really want to have been trained for dealing in well-fashioned manner with troubled employees who have depression.
