Employee Wellness Resources

The Senior Management Team knows that this is a difficult time for everyone, and wanted to share a few of our favourite tips to keep in mind as we practice self-care.

  • Our personal physical, mental, and emotional health is far more important then anything else.
  • We are not “working from home”, we are “at our homes, working during a crisis” and recognize that our success is measured differently in these circumstances. Maintain open communications with your manager and colleagues re workload expectations.
  • We strive to maintain a normal work schedule and boundaries between home and office time; this includes taking vacation time to rest and recharge.
  • We will remember that everyone copes differently and will practice kindness and compassion towards ourselves and others.
  • We will get through this together as a community. Reaching out to each other is of utmost importance. To support our students, we must also support each other with ongoing connection and compassion.
