Overview

For over two decades, the Better Workplace Conference has been bringing together leaders from across Canada to explore new ideas, learn practical tools, and commit to actions that improve workplaces. At its core, this event is about leaders coming together to share experiences, create meaningful connections, and learn to build Better Workplaces.


One Conference: Three Important Themes

Exploring the Better Workplace of the future is a broad, multi-faceted challenge. While we can’t cover everything, we’ve identified the topics that matter most: Leadership, Safety, and Well-Being are our central themes in 2019.

1) The Better Workplace has a clear purpose and fosters a positive organizational culture that helps everyone succeed.

o Leadership is the roadmap. Strong leadership guides us, celebrating milestones along the way and creating a culture to aspire to. It’s about creating better storytellers and coaches who inspire us to be our best selves. It’s leaders who are authentic, empathetic, and set a clear and meaningful path.

2) The Better Workplace provides a safe environment for all employees.

o Safety is the foundation of a Better Workplace. A Better Workplace cannot exist if employees are physically or psychologically injured. It’s about more than hard hats and work boots—it’s the safety culture within your organization. It’s the human and environmental factors that can lead to illness or injury.

3) The Better Workplace creates a space that keeps people healthy and provides support when needed.

o Well-being is ensuring you have a healthy workforce; one that supports those who become un-well. It’s about making space for real human interactions. It’s providing space for employees to improve their health, and it’s lending a hand to those in need.



The Better Workplace of the future is relentlessly focused on Leadership, Safety, and Well-Being. Together, they help create the conditions for people, businesses, and society to thrive.

Quotes from past delegates:

“You guys nailed it this year [2018] with the content. What I loved most was that creating a Better Workplace became about the employee experience as opposed to just managing claims and disability …. It was incredibly inspiring and uplifting, thank you!”

“Allowing people to share the experiences they had, either with their colleagues or selves, really makes the topic of mental health real.”
