Initiative: Healthy Workplace Month Challenge: “Win-Win” Challenge
Number of employees: 3000
Goal(s) of the Initiative:
We have opened this challenge up to other hospitals in Ontario to encourage a healthy competition. Each hospital will have their logo inserted on the physical pamphlet, and for each of the seven elements of wellness hospitals can input their specific healthy workplace month challenges, workshops or events.
Each participant will collect a “win-Win” Challenge booklet and check mark as many activities in the varying wellness elements throughout the month of October. At the end of the month participants will submit their booklets to the Wellness Team at their respective hospital.
S – Specifically complete 3 of the 10 wellness activities in each of the seven elements of wellness
M – Track your activities by putting a checkmark beside the activity in the booklet
A – Complete 3 of my favourite activities in each of the seven elements of wellness
R – On 3 of the days during each week of October I will complete one activity from the seven elements of wellness
T – These activities will begin October 1st and finish October 31st, 2018.
What need was being addressed by this initiative?
This specific competition takes into account our holistic approach by encouraging all participants to be active and well in all realms of wellness. By promoting and including the seven elements we hope to open up the eyes of all participants to see the benefits of holistic wellness, and become aware of the multitude of venues the Wellness Centre supports their health. We hope this translates to their family, friends and patients at CAMH.
Finally, this challenge creates a community of learning, with all participants engaging in the activities. This will build personal wellbeing and healthy behaviours, and instigate a community of wellbeing at CAMH.
