Experts agree that multi-faceted strategies are required to effectively enable behaviour change. For example, no single intervention will be sufficient to move sedentary individuals to action. A strategic mix of approaches must be implemented over time. The WellnessFits program utilizes 3 approaches: 1) Educate; 2) Act; 3) Support.
All workplace resources on this site are built upon the principle that workplaces can inform employees about health and wellness issues, provide opportunities for employees to change or improve their health behaviours, and provide supportive environments that enable action. To learn more about how to build your program around this model, visit our “Getting Started” section.
We would also like to recognize the contribution of the development of all Take Care of Your Equipment resources from the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and Health Canada.
