July 2019 e-news

Our July e-news welcomes the summer with a note of caution and a message on the importance of sun safety. We present a transformative approach to hiring that is changing the employment scene and confirm the importance of sustainability in drug benefits plans. Elsewhere, we consider mental health from two perspectives – cultural influences at home, especially in Asian communities, and at work. In our Profile, we look at a company that has been certified as a #1 workplace and recognized for its mental wellness initiatives. In our updates we revisit the ripple effect of innovation, learn that green energy costs are going down and introduce a new resource and a new movement in support of mental wellness at work.
