The pandemic has created tremendous strain on workplaces across Canada. However, through innovation, collaboration, and friendly co-opetition, workplaces can learn from and inspire each other to be agile in efforts of creating and sustaining healthy, high-performing work cultures.
The national workplace health and performance charter provides an opportunity to help steer this movement forward. By signing the Charter, organizational leaders have the chance to learn about leading practices and network with other visionary leaders who are equally passionate about supporting their employees in response to some of the pandemic's challenges.
After signing the Charter, leaders will also have the option to fill out a complimentary self- assessment that can help organizations gain better awareness of where they might be in implementing strategies, developing practices, and allocating resources to better support employee health and safety and well-being. Leaders can then better identify how to build on strengths and identify opportunities for improvement. This self-assessment follows a Plan-Do- Check-Act (PDCA) approach that adopts a systems-level approach to creating healthier workplace environments.
This short, nine-item questionnaire is accompanied by a resource guide will be available for download after the assessment is complete. It offers practical suggestions that are simple, cost- effective, and evidence-based to further support organizations in continual improvement. For non-members, this resource is available through donation, which further helps support our organization to produce free tools, resources, and professional development opportunities!
Employers in Canada are demonstrably committed to supporting employee well-being as a driver of organizational performance, a healthy Canadian population, and a high-performing economy.
The Charter provides an opportunity for leaders to be regional ambassadors for healthy, high-performing organizations. Charter signatories will widely communicate the importance of this goal, share successful practices for achieving it, and encourage other decision-makers in all economic sectors to set their own health and performance goals.
