Healthy Workplace Committee

McMaster University’s Healthy Workplace Committee was developed in 2002 and is comprised of employee volunteers from various areas within the University. Our shared goal is to improve the health and well-being of employees through education, awareness and participation through health and wellness events offered to employees throughout the year.

The Committee recommends and promotes workplace wellness initiatives that are aligned with University Health and Wellness priorities for McMaster employees through education, awareness and participation.

The purpose of the Committee is to enhance and nurture the well-being of all employees at McMaster through the development of innovative programs. The goal of the Healthy Workplace Committee is to increase awareness of a comprehensive approach to workplace health at McMaster University that involves three elements of a healthy workplace:

  • health and lifestyle practices 
  • workplace culture, and
  • a supportive environment
