Applications are now being accepted for the UBC Healthy Workplace Initiatives Program (HWIP). The program provides start-up funds for all UBC units that are interested in promoting workplace wellbeing.
HWIP has previously funded initiatives such as yoga classes, health challenges, mental health training and creative activities. Last year, UBC staff at the Alex Fraser Research Forest in Williams Lake used HWIP funds to create a xeriscape garden, which combines water conservation with the role plants can have in reducing physical and physiological stress.
If you know of a UBC department or unit that would benefit from HWIP funding, please encourage them to apply by April 18, 2019. For more information, visit the HWIP webpage.
