Inspiring Change Through Innovation


A healthy work environment is critical to the wellbeing of every healthcare provider. It is essential for the overall satisfaction of healthcare professionals, for successful recruitment and retention, and for quality of patient or client care.

But to achieve a healthy work environment, we are often challenged to think differently about our culture, habits and day-to-day practices at work. Change and implementation takes time and effort, and it takes a comprehensive approach that spans physical, cultural, social and job design conditions.

This site is a resource to engage the collective knowledge and experiences of healthcare providers across Ontario who are making a difference in their organizations. It brings together expert resources and leading practices with the individual experiences, success stories and practical ideas that are contributing to healthy work environments.
