Quality of Worklife (QWL)
Creating and maintaining a healthy workplace requires a supportive culture that clearly values employees and is trust-based. WPSHC has implemented a Quality of Worklife program that supports a healthy work environment for all of our employees, physicians and volunteers.
The main objective of our QWL program is to create and sustain an effective working environment that supports our skilled professional staff at work and at home. Health and well-being objectives are integrated into our organization's strategic plan. WPSHC is a proud employer that attracts and keeps the best people, through a commitment to ongoing professional development and a healthy work environment.

The program is structured by three primary groups to support our staff:
-Staff Welcoming and Activities Team (SWAT)
-Respect in the Workplace
Staff Welcoming and Activities Team (SWAT)
'Staff Welcoming and Activities Team (SWAT)' membership includes employees from all departments of the health centre as well as volunteers. This group works hard to arrange on-site and off-site activities and events. Such as:
Rama Bus Trips
Seasonal Boat Cruises (Spring and Fall)
Cross Country Ski Day
Christmas Dinner and Dance
White Water Rafting
Respect in the Workplace
Employee Family Assistance Program (EAP)
In order to sustain our wellness program, WPSHC believes the program must be evaluated on a regular basis. To help us with this process, feedback is welcome regarding new ideas, questions or concerns. Please emailto make a suggestion or share an idea.
