Explore fresh perspectives on workplace wellness

The health and wellness of employees has never been more important. While many workplaces have shifted to focus on their employees, people need connection now more than ever. True connection eliminates feelings of isolation and loneliness. These common stressors can lead to mental health issues.

Join us at the Alberta Blue Cross® Wellness Summit to explore how mental health can impact and shape wellness in the workplace. This virtual workplace wellness conference is tailored around inclusive culture and psychological safety. We’ll collaborate on how to maximize effective wellness programs and create a thriving organization.

Transform your workplace culture

Leave the summit empowered to take action. Gain solutions to drive positive behaviour change—because we know that organizational change begins with people.

  • Receive practical tools and resources that can be used individually or across your organization.
  • Learn action-oriented self-management strategies that directly impact mood, thoughts and behaviours and can be used to enhance employee mental health.
  • Understand how to put a human-centered approach to work and innovation in a health and wellness setting.
  • Recognize how a healthy culture and inclusive leadership supports employee well-being and performance.

The day was so beneficial and provided a wonderful opportunity to hear new ways to implement wellness. It was presented in a such a way that we could take things back to our workplaces that felt "doable".

All of the speakers had things I could take away and use in my workplace, so I felt the whole day was very engaging. The panel was interesting, as hearing from local companies working on improving the wellness in their organizations was inspiring.

I thoroughly enjoyed this summit. I was able to retain so much information and was very engaged the entire day (which is sometimes hard to do because it's a long day of learning). I will definitely be attending next year!
