BMO Offers Wellness Services To Entrepreneurs

BMO will provide the wellness services offered to its team members to Canadian business owners and entrepreneurs across Canada to help with stresses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. Mike Bonner, head of Canadian business banking at BMO Bank of Montreal, says, “We saw the challenges and strain that the pandemic was putting on clients and recognized that, in order to help businesses thrive, we needed to do more than just support them financially. We’re providing our wellness services to our clients to support Canada’s main street businesses more holistically.” The services, provided by LifeWorks, offer resources for overall well-being including mental, physical, social, and financial health. With the services, business owners and entrepreneurs can receive 24/7 access to confidential, short-term counselling support and professional advisors for advice and work-life support by phone, online, or mobile app; online well-being resources with articles, toolkits, and videos related to family, health, life, money, and work; well-being assessment tools and interactive self-guided programs to help manage anxiety, stress, grief, and relationships; and exclusive online offers from leading brands to help save on things like fitness, nutrition, health, and beauty.
