A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):

HEC Montréal is committed to offer a safe and welcoming environment to its community, particularly during the COVID-19 period where stress and anxiety are running high.
Students benefit from a wide range of services offered by the SAE (student services office), such as access to a psychologist, free health care services, wellbeing workshop, etc. during Covid-19 confinement period, students cannot request service or support onsite, and have to make appointment or request services online. To help them, a new web page, called the Success padlet, has been put online to quickly find and access all support resources offered to them in a single place (https://padlet.com/saesoutienreussite/15m5z80nby5ltqjn).
Similar services are offered to all employees, but are offered and managed by the HR. More over, employees, academic and non-academic alike, have access to the Programme d’aide aux employees (Employee help program), a program manage by a third party that ensure employees’ needs and request stays anonymous.
