Celebrate Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month!

This month at Iridia, we want to make a real, healthy difference. We are aligning ourselves with the goals of Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month by improving and building upon healthy lifestyle practices, workplace culture, occupational health and safety here in the office.

Healthy Workplace Month!

As a healthy lifestyle is a core focus of Canada’s Healthy Workplace month we wanted to help spread awareness for a local event called Jog4Joy; a 5K walk/run to raise awareness for mental and emotional wellness.
