Nurau develops a preventive solution to improve mental health at work

Mental health at work is not to be taken lightly. In the U.S., the phenomenon of “quiet quitting” is on the rise, resulting in huge expenses for companies that need to retrain other qualified employees.

But what strikes the imagination is that, according to a Gallup study, the majority of people leave their jobs because of their immediate manager. Not because of the company culture, not because of the salary, because they are uncomfortable with their immediate manager.

According to a Mercer Canada report, Canadian companies suffer an estimated $16.6 billion in lost productivity each year due to workers calling in sick with mental health issues.

A preventive solution for mental health at work

In this interview with Justin Lessard-Wajcer, founder of Nurau, he explains how the Nurau solution addresses the root cause of the problem by helping managers, who are often ill-equipped to provide inspirational leadership. Nurau offers a preventive solution to fight against the scourge of mental health in the workplace and thus increase staff retention in companies.

A mentoring approach

Just as Nurau’s mission is to improve mental health at work, the Caisse Desjardins des Technologies de l’information‘s corporate team bases its approach on mentoring and focuses on preparing startups to generate revenue quickly, and established technology companies to move to the next level.
