Did you know that on average we spend seven to ten hours per day at work? Employers may reap the benefits of a healthy workforce through reduced absenteeism and improved productivity however, imagine the health impact workplaces could have on their community! Workplace wellness programs give employees the tools they need to live healthy lives at work, at home and in their community.
Chatham-Kent employers looking for ways to develop strong links between health, safety, and wellness initiatives are invited to the third annual Workplace Wellness Recognition workshop. This FREE half-day workshop will be held in Chatham at the Bradley Conference Centre on October 19, 2017. Through brief presentations employers Aarkel Tool and Die Inc. – Wallaceburg, Growing Together Family Resource Centre – Chatham and KSR Dresden Industrial- Ridgetown will share the trials and triumphs of implementing and maintaining their workplace wellness programs.
This workshop will also focus on mental health and community initiatives.

The estimated economic cost is 51 billion per annum. Learn how not to be part of this statistic from employers who have been trained on and implemented the 13 psychological standards. You will also learn about the Convo Plate a new mental health initiative in our community.
Employers looking to get more involved in their community will learn how they can support Super Kids; a physical activity and healthy eating initiative for children 0-12. As well as Greener Communities, a tree planting initiative that will improve the health of our communities and conserve resources for future generations and creating shade for sun protection.
