Why reinvent the Wheel? This session will allow you to hear from three municipalities on their recently implemented workplace wellness activities and how these initiatives have helped enhance employee health and build a more supportive workplace culture.
The Municipal Wellness Program is currently focused on five priority areas, identified through consultation with external partners, the Municipal Wellness Committee, and informed by research.
The Municipal Wellness Program was established in 2014 and is a partnership between the Association of Municipal Administrators, NS and the Nova Scotia Federation of Municipalities. It is made possible through the Municipal Group Employee Benefits Program with assistance from LifeWorks, Desjardins Insurance, Medavie Blue Cross, and Hub International.
