Annual Joan Burton Day of Learning

Joan Burton was one of the founding members of the Coalition who was taken away far too early from cancer. A lead author of the World Health Organization’s Healthy Workplace Framework and recipient of the prestigious Canadian Workplace Wellness Pioneer Award in 2003 she was a believer in lifelong learning. Every May we honour change agents like Joan, by hosting our Joan Burton Day of Learning to bring together like-minded professionals to share what’s trending in organizational health and how we can continue to influence stakeholders and government in making measurable progress towards our goal.

Description of Session:
Healthy workplace programs are carefully planned, designed, and implemented. Attention is paid to all the important details. All the best research is referenced. But the same problems are encountered time after time – the program doesn’t catch on or momentum quickly burns out.

How can we build workplace programs that employees are excited about, that won’t die out when the leader leaves, and that impacts real change?

Anne Tennier and Wayne Clancy come together to talk about real solutions that are already in your workplace.
