Healthy Workplace Challenge
Are you ready to take the Healthy Workplace Challenge?
We invite you and your organization to get involved in Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month! To encourage participation and make it fun we have created weekly challenges during the month of October.
Goal of the Challenge
The goal is simple. We want to encourage everyone to do at least ONE thing to make their workplace healthier and safer. Each week has a specific theme and suggested activities that are fun and easy to implement and can be customized to fit your organization and kickstart a healthy workplace campaign. Adapt the activities or introduce other ideas to suit your unique needs and corporate environment!
