“Global-Watch Scientific Newsflashes”


Inspired by the Global-Watch Scientific Interpretations, PhD students from different disciplines and universities will write practical “scientific newsflashes” about topical themes related to the current situation based on international scientific studies. Under the direction of France St-Hilaire, associate professor of Human Resources at the Université de Sherbrooke’s School of Management and director of the Global-Watch Scientific Interpretations, these “Global-Watch Scientific Newsflashes” will be published each week.We invite you to share and circulate them widely to those who might find it useful.


Global-Watch wholeheartedly thanks all the PhD students and Prof. France St-Hilaire who have rallied around and provided volunteer contributions to these “Global-Watch Scientific Newsflashes”.

“We are in a time of information overload, where the web is teeming with all kinds of information and advice. Our goal with this ‘Scientific Newsflash’ initiative is to make scientific knowledge widely accessible for all employers, managers or employees wanting to benefit from rigorous knowledge and concrete objectives and courses of action.” – Marie-Claude Pelletier, President and Founder of Global-Watch

“Given this crisis, how can we, as employees or managers, continue working while maintaining our health and well-being? PhD students will provide answers to this question based on scientific knowledge. The Scientific Newsflashes are brief news items based on rigorous research, but conveyed in layman’s terms and understandable by everyone, allowing us to face the unprecedented challenges before us. I am very proud and touched by the students’ social engagement.” – Prof. France St-Hilaire, director of the Global-Watch Scientific Interpretations


Experts and specialists are saying…

Experts, specialists and researchers speak directly to managers and employees, offering them practical recommendations on several subjects. New videos will be added regularly.
