The Halifax Chamber of Commerce Workplace Wellness Campaign is the second of the Socio-Economic Determinants of Health Briefing Series. The series profiles corporate and community initiatives that have addressed one (or more) of the socio-economic determinants of health in profitable or sustainable ways. The initiatives serve as models that corporations and communities can adopt/adapt to enhance both population health and their own organizational performance.
The Halifax Chamber of Commerce workplace wellness campaign is an initiative aimed at increasing the number and scope of workplace wellness programs throughout Nova Scotia. Aimed at countering worsening health in the province, the campaign includes efforts to raise awareness of the corporate benefits of workplace wellness, to help companies implement sustainable programs, and to track and reward progress.
