Celebrate Healthy Workplace Month

Join us for OctoberBest 2018 –  designed to help you improve your overall wellbeing and promote a Healthier Workplace


OctoberBest is a series of challenges to make us more aware of our physical, mental, spiritual and community wellbeing and encourage healthier habits.  This is a great employee wellness initiative to embrace and promote within your company.  

We will send registrants an email once a week during the month of Oct. with a list of challenges (including nutrition, activity, community, mental and social wellbeing) At the end of each week report back on which ones you completed. Each completed challenge acts as a ballot toward weekly prizes.

OctoberBest is open to all Purdy’s Wharf tenants. Individuals can register for free (includes free access for Yoga, Workshops, Flu Shot clinic, Workplace Health and Safety, Afterwork social, club trial and more)
