Conestoga professor Dr. Kate Toth has received a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) for a research study to explore disclosure of mental illness in the workplace. The project has been funded for three years and is valued at more than $330,000.
Dr. Toth joined Conestoga in 2014 as a professor in the Bachelor of Business Administration – International Business Management degree program, teaching courses in the field of human resources to degree and graduate certificate students.
“This research will provide a deeper understanding of the impact of disclosure on job satisfaction and work tenure,” said Toth. “The end goal is new knowledge that will allow organizations to enhance inclusivity, leading to increased job tenure, enhanced recovery and well-being for individuals, and increased productivity and reduced disability claims costs for organizations. We are very grateful to CIHR for the opportunity to conduct this important work.”
