Organizational Culture

A positive work culture is built on respect, trust and honesty. We use this culture to guide our decision-making and daily interactions with colleagues. At Western this culture is predicated on collaboration, equity and inclusion, and treating each other with civility as we work towards a common goal - continuously elevating ourselves to the highest of global standards. This is a video created by Ottawa Public Health and the Mental Health Commission of Canada, and adapted with permission from Mindful Employer Canada.
