2012 is Life-Work Harmony…working toward a great life! October is Canada's Healthy Workplace Month

The 12th annual Canada's Healthy Workplace Month® (CHWM) is an October celebration to introduce workplace health to organizations and support those already promoting healthy workplaces. Organizations that submit their initiatives to Excellence Canada will be showcased on the Canada's Healthy Workplace Month® website.

CHWM is presented by Great-West Life through their national corporate citizenship program, and managed by Excellence Canada (formerly the National Quality Institute).
