Huron Health Unit Urges Employers To Ensure Employee Health

The Huron County Health Unit is urging employers to recognize the importance of a healthy workplace and healthy employees.

It is Workplace Wellness Month, and Senior Public Health Promoter Laura O’Rourke says about 60 local employers have already taken steps to ensure employees are healthy.

In the past year, almost 60 local employers and representatives have signed up for the Workplace Wellness: Making Good Business Sense in Huron newsletter. These include owners, supervisors, managers, human resources professionals and health and safety representatives.

The health unit launched a website last year at huronworkplacewellness.ca, along with a quarterly newsletter to cover health topics and offer free resources for Huron County employers.

“By investing in well-being, local employers increase job satisfaction, staff morale, and productivity in their workplace,” O’Rourke says.
