Workplace Wellness is a key success factor in today's competitive work environment. Research shows that healthy employees in a safe, healthy and supportive workplace give organization's a comptetive edge. A comprehensive workplace wellness plan incorporates two key components - the organization / environment and the employee (personal wellness). This workshop explores both components. 


Participants learn about personal wellness using the concept of the Wellness Wheel, and learn how to influence organizational wellness through Healthy Workplace practices.

At the completion of this workshop you will:

  • Understand the importance of the two components of Workplace Wellness. 
  • Develop strategies to address personal wellness issues. 
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in the health of your organization and create a plan to affect change where needed.
This workshop is for anyone who is involved (or wants to be involved) in a workplace wellness or health and safety initiative or committee in their workplace - as a coordinator, committee chair or committee member - along with those in the HR field that have responsibilities related to wellness.
