Here’s what I believe. There’s always a better way to do business. Whether you have a great workplace or a toxic one, it can always be better. And it’s become a business imperative, especially now. Running a healthy organization is no longer optional for success.
This is the purpose of the Health Work & Wellness™ Conference – creating better workplaces. I’m getting excited about hearing what each of this year’s speakers have to say, because they believe in creating better places to work, too. They have all put considerable energy and resources into moving their organizations from good to great, or from toxic to non-toxic.
The challenge for all of us is to ask the hard questions. What will it take to create my vision of a better place to work? How can I shape the culture in my workplace or department to be one where people can be at their best? What will I have to eliminate or add in order to do this? As we all know, culture change is much more difficult than simply implementing programs. It takes time and courage, but the results are much more rewarding.
On October 4-6, get out of the office! Come and join a few hundred like-minded individuals at Conference 2011 who want to create healthy change. We’ll be engaging in some stimulating discussion and connecting with new people. The big ideas will be flowing! And we’ll all be finding a better way to work.
What People Say
“I really appreciated the ability to move through several one hour sessions and take advantage of many topics with expert speakers from the field of organizational health. Not many credible conferences such as this one are available in Canada.”— , Manager, Workplace Wellness and Substance Abuse Prevention Programs – Healthy Lifestyles Division, Regional Municipality of York
