Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month is Oct 1 – 31…the 2012 theme is Life-Work Harmony –Working Toward a Great Life! Over the next few months the Wellness Committee will be showcasing an education and awareness program around mental health in the workplace.

Watch for healthy workplace actions you can do over the next 4 - 5 weeks, leading up to the 6th Annual Life Balance Fair.

Oct 1 - 6 - Taking action on mental health
Oct 7 - 13- Improving our workplace culture
Oct 14 - 20 - Making our workplace resilient
Oct 21 - 27 - Keeping our workplace safe

The Wellness Committee would also like to take this opportunity to bring health and wellness information and resources to where you are – at work! Come out to the 6th annual Life Balance Fair – November 7th from 10 – 1 – on the Indoor Track at the 1st Choice Centre for Sport and Wellness.

Watch for information and results from the Employee Health and Wellness Survey that hopefully you participated in last spring. Find out the following:
- Top 5 responses when employees think about health
- What percentage of employees are exposed to second hand smoke at work or at home?
- How many people are aware of the Employee and Family Assistance Program?
- What do your co-workers do to manage their stress?
