At the core of a healthy workplace is communication and from there the priorities include growth and development, a culture of respect, recognition and a work-life balance.

Dr. Arla Day of Saint Mary's University says every company is different but they often have similar challenges.

They can be negative relationships like a toxic boss or it can be incivility among co-workers which she says can spiral quickly.

Day says psychologically healthy workplaces lead to increased performance and improved employee attitudes.
