Workplace wellness, health and safety

Work/life flexibility

We strengthened the effectiveness of our Health and Safety microsite on our portal during FY2013. The site provides interactive tools and videos to educate staff about important workplace wellness initiatives including ergonomics assessments, employee assistance counseling, nutrition and working through life events. To enhance the usability of the site, a Spark page was launched during FY2013–an internal social networking tool to help our local Health and Safety committees better connect to share meeting minutes, employee feedback, updates and local promotional events. We also launched a new portal called LifeSpeak in collaboration with our employee assistance provider Shepell. LifeSpeak provides our employees and their families access to a video library of 6-to-10 minute podcasts covering a variety of wellness issues. We plan on strengthening these initiatives throughout FY2014 to help streamline our efforts across the country.
