Labor management partnerships create positive work environments
Creating a culture of well-being for school staff requires dynamic programs and activities, thoughtful policies, and environmental change. It’s critical to involve representatives from labor and management in whatever wellness initiatives your school decides to do. Gaining support from both parties results in increased credibility of the program, higher levels of participation, more availability of internal resources, lower levels of resistance from employees and overall greater chances of success in launching your wellness efforts.
An effective way to promote employee well-being is for employees and management to work together. By collaborating, school employees, their unions, and school administrators create a better place to learn, work, and thrive.
