The Group companies in health has launched the Tour leaders in order to raise awareness and support employers in Quebec. Concrete examples of companies that have put in place procedures structured to the health and well-being in the workplace will be presented in order to inform the employers.
The group hopes that a greater number of small and medium-sized businesses throughout Quebec offer programs and environments conducive to health. Statistics Canada estimates that there are currently 260 000 companies in Quebec with fewer than 500 employees.
“Agents of positive change”
According to the president of the board of directors of the Group companies in health, Roger Bertrand, companies engaged in a structured approach to the health and well-being act as ” agents of positive change in our society, because they inspire other companies to take action. “
The tour was officially launched at the Cegep Garneau in Quebec city last week. It will be deployed over the next few months across the province.
