The Eastern Ontario Health Unit offers the Workplace Health Promotion Program - a program that's designed to support workplaces and decision-makers in improving the health of their employees. We can provide employers with information on various health issues and help develop a health and wellness program tailored to the needs of each particular workplace.

Did you know that an unhealthy workforce costs money? There are direct costs such as disability costs, indirect costs such as absenteeism or replacement labour, and opportunity costs such as loss of innovation, decreased quality of work and low productivity.

Workplace health programs are known to decrease absenteeism, improve productivity, decrease the number of insurance and workers’ compensation claims and decrease accidents. They reduce staff turnover, which means that employers are able to keep valued staff.

Don’t forget that healthy employees are happy employees. The Canadian Life Assurance Company found that fitness program participants had a 32.4% lesser turnover rate over 7 years. So don’t wait, make your workplace a healthy one today!
