October is Healthy Workplace Month!

Healthy Workplace Month is an annual celebration that aims to increase awareness of the need for a comprehensive approach to workplace health in Canada. It encourages organizations to promote healthy workplace practices throughout the year.

Why is this important? Here’s the thing, and it’s kind of a no-brainer… Healthy employees that are in healthy work environments have:

  • an increased capacity for and desire to provide exceptional care and service
  • are better equipped to avoid burnout and caregiver fatigue, and
  • experience more satisfaction and positive emotions from helping others

Everyone wins when workplaces are healthy!
