On October 29, 2015, twenty local workplaces received the Region of Waterloo Healthy Workplace Award recognizing their strong commitment to improving the health of their employees. Teledyne DALSA is proud to announce that the company has been recognized again this year with a Gold Healthy Workplace Award.
Our Stay Strong Wellness Program was launched in September 2013 at our Waterloo location and that was our first formal step toward helping our employees in their journey to a healthier lifestyle. Our wellness mission is to improve the health and wellness of our employees - both physically and mentally - through education, increased awareness and fun, interesting challenges.
In addition to lunch & learns, awareness campaigns and team or individual wellness challenges, our employees have the option to meet one-on-one with our on-site wellness consultant whose wealth of knowledge, dedication and enthusiasm are so inspiring for all of us.
The workplace can have a significant impact on employee wellbeing and here at Teledyne DALSA we believe that workplace wellness initiatives are an investment in the long-term health and wealth of our employees.
Here is what some of our employees have said about our program:
“I believe the program has been very helpful and has had a direct impact on the way I think and feel about health and wellness. I do feel healthier and more knowledgeable about certain aspects of my daily routine. The 1-1 consultations have been excellent. She has taught me quite a few things and has helped impact various areas of day to day training whether for sports or in general. I like all of the fun activities and group events that this program has brought to Teledyne DALSA. It has been fun and exciting and I have learned quite a bit from each one.”
“I have participated in many wellness initiatives: 1-1 consultations, Extreme Lifestyle Makeover and the stretch and strengthening classes. I am very pleased with the variety of programs and services offered by our Wellness program and often find myself bragging to friends and family about how focused on health and wellbeing Teledyne DALSA is. 1-1 consultations are great; the consultant has helped me with many of my fitness goals, helped ease my reoccurring back pain with new stretches/exercises and she is very informed when talking about nutrition! Overall, I could not be happier with the Wellness program and I look forward to participating in more events in the near future!”
