Only 20% of Canadian adults are getting the recommended amount of physical activity and our modern workplace culture is feeding into this issue. More time is spent sitting at work than ever before, leading to a less active, less healthy, and less productive workforce.
UPnGO with ParticipACTION (external link) is a physical activity workplace wellness program designed to help participants understand and overcome common barriers to making active choices, and rewards them for adding more steps to the workday.
This session will provide an overview of the research and behaviour change strategies that helped guide the development of this evidence-based program.
GE’s HealthAhead Enterprise Standard for Healthy Sites provides guidance to worksites to ensure they are healthy and safe, and connects employees and their families to tools and programs to support their personal wellbeing. During this session, Cheryl McCann, Health and Wellness Coordinator, and Dan Zabarylo, Global Engineering & Safety Leader, will describe how the GE Water Oakville campus provides a supportive environment for employees to be physically active.
