Meaningful work: The Key to employee engagement
Levels of job satisfaction can be found in the difference between what individuals expect and what they experience at work. When people experience job satisfaction, they have higher levels of motivation. Motivated employees also have better mental health at work and are more productive. It’s a win-win for organizations and their employees. One of the most important consequences of positive attitudes toward work and job satisfaction is work engagement.

Ontario Increasing Community Programs to Prevent Youth Violence and Human Trafficking

OTTAWA – The Ontario government is launching 11 new community-based programs in Ottawa, Hamilton, London, Thunder Bay, Toronto and neighbouring Indigenous communities to prevent youth from becoming involved in gun violence, gang activity and victimization, including human trafficking. As part of Ontario’s Guns, Gangs, and Violence Reduction Strategy. these new intervention and prevention programs will help youth find meaningful alternatives to violence and achieve better outcomes.
“Our government is working with communities across the province to support youth, reduce crime and make Ontario safer,” said Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services. “We know it’s critical to intervene early and provide youth with supports that address the root causes that make them susceptible to violence and victimization, including through human trafficking.”
