For business owners, plan sponsors and administrators

New health insights from Manulife show younger Canadian workers are going on sick leave for mental health issues more frequently, and growing numbers are seeking treatment for diabetes.

“We’re seeing some concerning health trends, particularly among younger employees. Employers need help keeping their workforce healthy to stay competitive,” says Kim MacFarlane, VP of Group Benefits Products for Manulife Canada.
