SUBJECT: We are committing to become a healthier workplace


Dear employee,

We believe there is nothing more important than your health and well-being.

To support our ongoing efforts to improve the health of our organization, we are participating in the Healthy Workplace Essentials Challenge. This means we will be working toward a number of milestones established by Excellence Canada, the program’s creator. Each milestone is focused on helping our organization develop healthy workplace practices that address the diverse health and wellness needs of employees. You can learn more about the program by visiting Excellence Canada’s web site.

As our company achieves milestones, you will be automatically awarded with 500 bonus Balance points. When we achieve all 10 milestones, you will have earned 5,000 bonus points. To see if you’ve earned points, sign into Balance via the Alberta Blue Cross member web site and click “History” in your personal dashboard on the right-hand side of the screen. You can redeem your bonus points for a chance to win great prizes in the “My Rewards” store.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact your human resources manager.

Sincerely,
