One of the many things Horizon School Board strives to achieve is a good working environment for all of their staff so they can better assist all the students in their studies. At the most recent board meeting on Jan. 23, Robbie Charlebois, associate superintendent of Human Services at Horizon School Division, announced the progress that has been achieved.
“Horizon has made increased efforts to focus on staff wellness,” said Charlebois. “We did the work survey, we had 346 staff participate in the survey which we were thrilled about. We got some really valuable data from that survey. We partnered with Edcan Well at Work advisors to go through the data. They created a report, focusing on our strengths and areas that we might need to grow. One of the comments was that we had some of the most positive results that they have seen across Canada as far as workplace wellness data. We took that as a very positive — of course, there’s always work to be done so we’re pulling back the layers and looking for more data to improve in some areas to make sure that Horizon is taking care of our employees and making sure we have the most positive and healthy workspaces.”
