Saskarc Group Happiness at Work Week Initiative Raises over $1,600 for Galloway Health Centre Handi-Van

Avro Raises Community Support Funds

Saskarc Group, including Saskarc Inc., Axiom Equipment Group and Avro GSE, celebrated International Happiness At Work Week the week of September 23, 2019.

The aim of International Happiness at Work Week is to celebrate happiness in the workplace through positive teambuilding and charitable activities.

Avro GSE is fully committed to every employee’s wellbeing and job satisfaction. The satisfaction brought by Happiness at Work Week was well noted among Avro’s team.

“It’s important to have community involvement and employee engagement initiatives to keep people motivated and have a feeling of self-worth,” said Leanne Nyeste, Administration Assistant. “It also feels good when you see that you have made a difference and that your efforts have paid off.”

Employees who rate themselves as highly satisfied and engaged are more productive, flexible, resilient, creative and work better with colleagues. In turn, this happiness benefits customers who receive products and services that are provided by motivated teams who offer creative solutions.

Avro’s team kicked off International Happiness at Work Week with a Smile Board, where employees shared what makes them happy to come to work.

Throughout the week, employees added to the Smile Board, and participated in a Friday Fitness fundraising challenge, which, together with the other Saskarc Group business’s, collectively raised $1,657.70 for the ongoing Galloway Health Centre Handi Van fundraising initiative.
