Healthy Workplace Charter

Our vision of Healthy People, Healthy Communities includes a vision of healthy workplaces throughout Eastern Health.

Our employees, physicians and volunteers have the right and the responsibility to work in and support a healthy workplace.

To achieve this vision, Eastern Health’s leaders will adopt an approach that seeks to engage us all as partners in this process. Health, safety and wellness are directly linked to the delivery of high quality health care and services. An environment that maximizes our health and well-being results in improved quality of care for our clients, and a stronger organization.

By signing this charter, Eastern Health’s leaders commit to a healthy workplace and to the following principles:
  • We will think of health in terms of the whole person – mind, body and spirit.
  • We will support initiatives that aim to improve our health and the health of our work environments.
  • We will promote an environment that is safe and that recognizes diversity.
  • We will provide opportunities for our employees, physicians and volunteers to reach their full potential, support their responsibilities to family and community, and develop healthy working relationships.
  • We will include healthy workplace strategies in organizational and departmental plans.
  • We will work with partners inside and outside the organization to achieve a healthy working environment.
