Healthy Workplace Team
Healthy Workplace involves faculty and staff members from across Carleton, working together to promote positive health and well-being for all employees. 25 members from across the university serve on the Healthy Workplace Committee and over 90 individuals volunteer as Healthy Workplace Champions.
The Healthy Workplace Committee
The Healthy Workplace Committee is composed of a diverse cross-section of staff and faculty and is responsible for the development, implementation and evaluation of the Healthy Workplace Strategic Plan. This includes overseeing Healthy Workplace activities and programs that encourage faculty and staff to champion positive physical and mental health, build meaningful social connections, foster personal and collective resilience, explore opportunities for personal growth, and enjoy work-life balance. The Committee also supports Carleton’s journey to excellence through the adoption and implementation of Excellence Canada’s Healthy Workplace and Mental Health at Work frameworks.

Healthy Workplace Champions
Healthy Workplace Champions are faculty and staff volunteers who play an important role in improving the health and well-being of the university’s employees.
