Healthy Workplace Champion Summit

The Saskatoon Healthy Workplace Initiative hosted a full-day Healthy Workplace Champion Summit on June 12 at the Western Development Museum. Forty-eight Champions from across the former Saskatoon Health Region were in attendance. The first part of the day was spent in a World Café-style exercise designed to give the HW Champion Network a voice to inform the strategic direction of healthy workplace development across the new organization, and to explore improvement and evolution of the champion network.

The World Café is an easy-to-use method for creating a meaningful and cooperative dialogue around questions that matter in service to real work. We based our three questions on the feedback provided from the HW Survey to Champions:As champions,

  1. What is our vision of a healthy workplace initiative within the expanded context of the Saskatchewan Health Authority? How do we evolve as an initiative in a larger structure – how can we move forward?
  2. How would you feel more connected to other healthy workplace champions and the network as a whole? How can we build a sense of community?
  3. What action steps can be taken by the champions and the HW initiative to address the themes identified in the survey? What are some concrete ideas that could change the way we work as champions?
