Atlantic Towing accepts the responsibility of creating a healthy workplace and providing an environment that allows employees to maintain good health, enjoy their work, and contribute to the company's success. Workplace wellness is more than a "lunch and learn" program. It's about developing a "people first" approach to doing business. It's about taking care of employees, maintaining a positive work environment, and paying attention to the factors that keep employees healthy and happy. A good workplace health and wellness program has an impact on employees' mental, physical, emotional, and social well-being.
Atlantic Towing has programs designed to assist employees in choosing healthier behaviours like being more physically active or quitting smoking. Campaigns to raise awareness, educational sessions to increase knowledge, opportunities to learn new skills, and changes to policies to make it easier for employees to make healthy choices are included.
