Mental Health is real which is why it is extremely important to continue breaking the stigma around Mental Health, especially within the construction industry. It was a great day to see thousands of people come from all over to participate and bring awareness to Mental Health.
Flyer Electric has always been passionate about breaking mental health stigma in the workplace and finding ways to be part of the change in how people view mental health, especially in the construction industry.
Since Spring of 2022, the Company had implemented a workplace wellness program through Merit Saskatchewan to help break the stigma around mental health in the workplace. Employees have had the opportunity to openly learn and talk in a safe environment with each other.
