Group Benefits Bright PapersIn the spirit of white papers, Sun Life’s Bright Papers combine careful research and thoughtful analysis to help plan sponsors gain a deeper understanding of employee attitudes and behaviour. We believe that understanding what plan members want and expect is integral to helping them stay healthy, allowing employers to reap the rewards of a healthier workforce.
Although many Canadian organizations have taken steps toward supporting the health and well-being of their employees, the majority have not yet made a strategic commitment to wellness.
