Healthy Workplace, Healthy Business

By Suzanne Robicheau | fall 2015

The Nova Scotia business and research communities came together at the Sobey School of Business to recognize the accomplishments of Nova Scotian employers in promoting and maintaining supportive and healthy workplaces. Held in August during the annual Occupational Health Psychology Summer Institute hosted by Saint Mary’s CN Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, the Fifth Nova Scotia Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards ceremony recognized three local companies for demonstrating a commitment to the psychological health and well-being of their employees: Heritage Gas Limited, Slim Gyms Fitness, and Northwood. “When you treat your employees well and provide a healthy workplace, it pays off in terms of recruitment, retention, and the bottom line,” says Saint Mary’s professor and Canada Research Chair Dr. Arla Day, Chair of the Nova Scotia Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards Committee.
