Amazon has launched WorkingWell Canada, a program to give employees mental activities, wellness exercises, healthy eating support and more.
This is part of an investment of $300 million USD into safety projects in North America.
By the end of the year, the program will expand to cover all operations in Canada and the US, with the goal of cutting incident rates by 50 per cent by 2025.
"Launching WorkingWell across our operations is an important step forward in meeting our mission to become Earth's safest place to work," says Sumegha Kumar, director of Canadian customer fulfillment operations for Amazon Canada. "We have identified and implemented innovative health and safety technologies and approaches designed to address employee well-being in our facilities, and we're thrilled to continue this commitment to employee well-being and safety innovation through the WorkingWell program."
