UBC’s favourite departmental funding program is back! The Healthy Workplace Initiatives Program provides funds to departments and units to support grassroots activities that promote wellbeing in the workplace.
The program provides the start-up funds and support for health-related sustainable activities and initiatives like yoga classes, health challenges, mental health training, bike share programs, creative activities and more.
In 2016, the program funded four bike share programs, five patio gardens, eight health challenges, six innovative new ideas, two arts-based projects, three mental health training workshops and nine fitness classes in Vancouver and the Okanagan.
Have a great idea? Want to boost team-building and the health of your colleagues? It’s easy to apply – and the benefits to your department or unit can be far-reaching.
