In this era of non-stop news and social media, where too often studies are the subject of headlines leaving viewers with the impression of the “discovery of the century” or a “magic bullet,” how can we tap into the real subject of a scientific consensus and conclusive data? This is one of the things that Global-Watch does for the benefit of its affiliates, with the support of its scientific team..

Renowned scientists and specialists dedicated to helping employers and workers

 

During this period of uncertainty and anxiety, it’s even more important to take care of employees and loved ones. True to its mission of promoting the movement from promising practices and from science to action when it comes to workplace health and well-being, Global-Watch will continue to provide high-quality information to employers and their employees.

We would like to recognize the work of the researchers, experts and specialists who are striving to develop these resources, providing employers with credible recommendations based on good practices.

“We are in a time of information overload, where the web is teeming with all kinds of information and advice. Our goal 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

This initiative is supported by the Chief Scientist of Québec with the Québec Research Funds.

The Global-Watch Université de Sherbrooke Scientific Newsflashes

COURSES OF ACTION FOR EMPLOYERS AND WORKERS

This initiative was launched with the pandemic in March 2020. 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, these Global-Watch Université de Sherbrooke Scientific Newsflashes are published regularly. We invite you to share and circulate them widely to those who might find it useful.

“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 «Global-Watch Université de Sherbrooke 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 Université de Sherbrooke Scientific Newsflashes
