Work Habits, Working Conditions And The Health Status Of The Executive Cadre In The Public Service Of Canada. A Synopsis of APEX’s 1997 Study.
In the fall of 1997, APEX conducted a study on the health status of the Executive (EX) Group in the
ublic Service of Canada. The Association had become very concerned about the impact of the rking
conditions and working environment on the health of federal public service executives, the
repercussions of which are both personal and corporate. APEX had already communicated executives’
thoughts on this issue to the “centre”, where our concern was shared. However at that point, our
observations were largely based on anecdotal evidence from Association members and representatives
of the medical community in Ottawa-Carleton.
