November 2018



Welcome to Movember—also occasionally known as November! While only some of us can grow a mo, we can all make a difference when it comes to men’s cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Why not take this opportunity to raise awareness about mental health in your workplace? Simply type ‘mental health’ into The Sandbox’s search bar to find a wealth of information to help get you started. In the meantime, keep reading to see what you may have missed on The Sandbox in October!


Confetti and Collaboration

We kicked off last month’s batch of new blogs with a celebration—it was our third birthday, after all! Once the confetti settled, we dove into the collaborative approach to workplace wellness with Elk Island Catholic Schools. And since we love to keep the inspirational juices flowing, we jumped right into our most recent Sandblog about the ways to integrate spirituality at work.
