This biennial survey was the fourth in a series initiated in 1996, and provides an opportunity to assess how the perspectives of these leaders on key issues have changed over six years. The 2002 survey received an 20% response rate, normal for surveys of this type.
This report summarizes key findings on healthy workplace practices from the Canadian Labour and Business Centre’s (CLBC) Viewpoints 2002 Survey. Research on the determinants and costs of workplace diseases supports the notion, expressed in the 2000 Viewpoints Survey by business and labour leaders, that psycho-social factors such as morale, trust and good working relationships play an important role in maintaining or improving workplace health, and that their absence can be costly.
