Workplace Health Programs
Our Health Unit provides a high quality, flexible program that can be adapted to meet the needs of your workplace. We work in partnership with other local community organizations, service providers, unions, and Go For Health Windsor-Essex to offer a comprehensive workplace wellness program.
Our comprehensive workplace wellness program involves four main strategies to promote the health of employees and their families, and to help create and support healthy workplace environments. The four strategies are:
- Awareness Raising: Information about the benefits of making healthy choices.
- Education or Skill Building: Help to educate and develop the necessary skills to support healthy choices.
- Environmental Support: Create supportive physical or cultural workplace environments that strengthen and enhance healthy practices.
- Policy Support Development: Policies to further enhance and sustain healthy practices.
