October is a great time to focus on workplace wellness!

October has a lot of focus on mental health and workplace health throughout Canada and around the world. Which means it is a great time to start or maintain engagement around the areas of mental health. If this is not something your office is already talking about, now is a great time to start. Below I’ve included some resources that could be useful for your office.

If you’re looking to create a workplace wellness strategy tailored to your office connect with me. I can help create a plan that will fit the needs of your staff. You can also download my free workplace wellness checklist to get you started.
