Employee Committee at Pickering Public Library

Employee Committee at Pickering Public Library

In 2013, when the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety was released, Pickering Public Library chose to take a proactive and collaborative approach to better understand and support ourselves and our employees by forming a committee primarily of employees representing all departments in our organization. The topic of mental health is now discussed regularly and more openly throughout the organization and we continue to see high level of support for our PHS program from all stakeholders—senior management, the Board, the union, and our employees. As a workplace, it’s simply the right thing to do.
