Workplace Health 101

“A healthy workplace is a place where individuals and the organization both thrive

and take responsibility for improving their own health,

as well as creating a healthy workplace environment.”

- Canadian Healthy Workplace Council

No manager or business leader can afford to ignore the growing costs – both financial and human – of poor physical and mental health in the workplace. The Making a Business Case section will provide you with ample evidence that workplace wellness is good for the bottom line.

An effective wellness program will take a comprehensive approach that impacts employee health and, ultimately, the productivity of the workplace.  The Comprehensive Workplace Wellness Model section gives you the details about this approach.

Implementing the model successfully requires a multifaceted approach using a variety of health promotion strategies.  This section will give you a primer on these strategies.
