Each year Western Human Resources offers a presentation or workshop in a continuing Wellness Series.
In November and December 2012, two presentations on Eldercare were offered, led by FSEAP (providers of Western’s Employee Assistance Plan).
All workshops are offered at no cost to Western employees. Watch this space for future presentations and opportunities.
