We’re on the Highway to Health
Here at Erb, we prioritize the wellbeing of our employees. Any steps we can take to ensure the health of our employees are worthwhile to us. Highway to Health is a health and wellness program implemented at Erb to provide health and wellness resources to all employees. Our Highway to Health program was first implemented at Erb in 2009 and has been the recipient of multiple Healthy Workplace Awards in the Waterloo region since then. The program is designed to put health and wellness in the forefront of our employee’s minds in a unique and creative way. The program offers yearly initiatives regarding health and wellness topics such as physical activity, healthy eating, work/life balance, work stress, and more. Through this program, we even offer discounted Goodlife Fitness gym memberships for all Erb employees.
Additionally, representatives from the Erb Group have recently been organizing health and wellness fairs and events at each Erb terminal. So far, these fairs have been a great success. Representatives from Diabetes Canada, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, various mental health associations, and dietitians, were all present at these health fairs. Employees were able to ask these experts any of their questions in an open and transparent atmosphere. Carolyn VokesReibeling, Erb’s Corporate Health and Wellness Coordinator, sat down to discuss the endless benefits of these events. “These fairs let us provide our employees with a workplace venue where they can speak to experts regarding the health of themselves, or even a loved one”. Carolyn also explains that these fairs/events offer our employees additional resources and information (web links, brochures, etc) about all topics.
We have found great success in these events, and continue to receive positive feedback regarding them. Providing our employees with these types of initiatives and resources is an extra step in ensuring a positive workplace environment. We have been very pleased with the response and interest from our Erb employees! Their health and wellbeing is always our priority. This program, along with recent health fairs, allows us to engage with our employees and promote their personal health and wellness. Here at Erb, we’re on the Highway to Health!
