Globalité offers custom training and conferences to companies and insurance providers. These trainings present the latest trends in health and well-being at work, prevention and rehabilitation after work disability.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to increase knowledge, generate ideas and improve practices.

Here are a few frequently mentioned subjects:

Mental health at work: increase manager awareness and provide tools
This training aims to:

  • Learn about the factors contributing to good mental health at work.
  • Identify the preventive actions to take when an employee presents certain symptoms.
  • Conduct a constructive conversation to support the employee’s success.
  • Understand the key elements when accompanying and supporting a return to work process.

Protecting your mental health at work
It is important to know how to protect your mental health, because if you don’t do this, the tension resulting from the suffering and discomfort will build up more and more, until you become like a popcorn machine: the popcorn representing all the tension resulting from the suffering and discomfort that are constantly building up inside.

Stress management
Many people are unable to recognize signs of stress, and worse, some of them may feel it, without even being aware. It is true that stress can come from good and bad situations, which can be confusing.

In this training, we propose methods to help develop higher awareness of stress in order to be able to prevent it. You will notice that learning to deal with stress is a daily effort.

  • Conflict management

In this training, we will explore the following themes:

  • What is conflict.
  • Signs.
  • Symptoms.
  • How to resolve conflict.
  • Knowledge of the different communication techniques and strategies.
  • Being able to deal with problematic situations in the workplace.

Work disability management

We will present the basic notions about managing disability and the importance of work in adult life. Components of a global disability management program will be discussed in order to be able to analyse the professional, social, legal and financial aspects of disability management and master the different factors that lead to work disability, and particularly to a prolonged disability leave.

Implementing a return to work program
We will touch on the components of an intervention plan for a sustainable return to work for an employee who is on disability leave. We will also discuss the following aspects: determining factors of disability, active components of a return to work plan and analysis of the effect of return to work interventions.

Implementing a mental health management program
We will touch on the key elements to implement a mental health management program in the workplace and share different tools and resources that can be rapidly used in the workplace.

Role of the players in work disability management
We present the role of each different player involved in work disability management and in managing the return to work process. We also identify the roles and responsibilities of each player on a management level and in treating disability cases.

Role of the occupational health manager
The objective of this training is to give managers the tools to be able to:

  • react to early warning signs;
  • manage health problems;
  • use an efficient communication model;
  • adopt healthy management methods to improve on your employees’ quality of life at work;
  • identify preventive actions that can be taken when certain symptoms are detected in employees;
  • be aware of the elements to put in place to promote a sustainable return to work.

Accommodation process

We expose the principles of the accommodation process and the use of various tools to support accompanying an employee dealing with limitations that require accommodations.

Work disability prevention model
Over the last years, there was a paradigm change in rehabilitation and work disability management. This change in paradigm implied no longer seeing the “illness”, or deficiency as the only problem to be solved to reduce a prolonged work leave. The true “illness” becomes not only the musculoskeletal problem (MP) (the deficiency), the transient mental disorder (TMD) or the cancer (or other), but its potential consequences:

  • intolerance to activities;
  • a long-term disability;
  • an inability to work.

The work disability prevention model is explained in order to be better prepared for the rehabilitation intervention.

Occupational health problems can quickly become very problematic for the employee who but also for the employer.
