The goal of a healthy workplace is to encourage employees to be healthy at work. A healthy workplace experiences many benefits including healthier employees, less absenteeism, increased productivity, less sick leave, and better workplace morale. Workplaces are unique. Within Durham we are proud to have multiple sectors providing services and job opportunities for Durham residents.

Workplaces can receive recognition by implementing a variety of health promotion strategies on a particular health topic. Strategies can include awareness raising, education and skill building, environmental changes, and informal or formal policies and guidelines that are reflective of your health topic.
