Obtain your Organization’s Commitment to Workplace Wellness

The following key actions are recommended for this step:

  • Obtain your organization’s commitment to invest in workplace wellness, including a commitment from your senior leaders, managers, employees and other stakeholders
  • Align your organization’s vision, mission and values with NB’s Wellness Strategy and Framework and highlight the contribution your organization makes, as a wellness-supporting environment, to a culture of wellness in New Brunswick.
  • Adopt an approach where, from the beginning, managers clearly understand their role and are supported to be the leaders who set the daily direction and tone for workplace wellness. This includes helping them to communicate your organization’s values with employees, to share how your organization’s wellness goals are connected to those values and to involve employees in identifying and adopting daily practices that demonstrate your organizational values and support wellness in your workplace.
  • Prepare a Business Case and describe the benefits for your people and your organization, including the potential Return on Investment (ROI) for workplace wellness. Make the link between employee health, safety and wellness and the overall performance and long-term health of your organization.
