Planning Healthy Meetings
Meetings are a central part of today’s world of work and may involve food, drinks and long periods of sitting. Meetings should be an efficient way to disseminate information, obtain feedback or make collective decisions. However, sometimes there are too many meetings or they are inefficient and don’t meet their anticipated goals.
The Healthy Meetings 4 All! document is intended to help users host meetings, conferences or events that are different; that foster a learning environment where participants stay alert, productive and engaged throughout the event. This can encourage and support healthier choices at home and at work and will also support event participants in their healthy living goals.
Explore how effective coping strategies and supportive work environments can help manage personal and work-related stress and result in better work-life-family balance.
