Leading the way to a healthier and more productive workplace

Executive Breakfast presentation. Forum North Health and Safety Conference 2007. Thunder Bay, ON.
In the 21st century, creating healthy workplaces must be a strategic business goal. Healthy workplaces obviously benefit employees, improving their health and wellness, but they also have big pay-offs for employers. Investing in healthy workplaces can significantly reduce health benefit and absenteeism costs. And at a time when many employers are searching for better ways to recruit, develop, retain and use talent, a healthy work environment also directly contributes to these people goals. Creating a truly healthy workplace requires more than a ‘program.’ Above all, it depends on transforming organizational cultures, systems and practices so that health is embedded in how the business operates.
