FEBRUARY IS FISH MONTH FOR PRAIRIE NORTH HEALTH REGION

February 8, 2007

For the rest of February, Prairie North Health Region is going ‘FISHing’.

FISH or the FISH Philosophy is a workplace wellness initiative intended to create a healthy, fun and supportive work environment that will help retain and recruit employees. A healthy positive work environment can positively impact care and assistance for all clients.

The FISH Philosophy was borne in a rundown fish plant in Seattle, Washington and helped to turn that workplace into a positive, successful model for other employees and employers. The philosophy has reached across the world, and is now spreading throughout Prairie North Health Region from North Battleford to Goodsoil and Lloydminster, and all the great communities in between: Meadow Lake, St. Walburg, Lashburn, Cut Knife, and many more.

The FISH Philosophy is based on four simple principles to promote lifelong learning that inspires personal transformation and encourages growth through a culture of individuals who feel alive, engaged, and committed to the work they do.

The Fish Philosophy Principles are:

1)      Be There.  Listen to others and yourself and be conscious of how you show up for work and for your family and friends each day.

2)      Play.  Find ways to incorporate play into your daily life. Approach work, family, responsibilities and challenges with energy and enthusiasm.

3)      Make Their Day.  Go out of your way for your clients, family, and co-workers.  Strive to bring sincerity and value into their lives.

4)      Choose Your Attitude.  Live fully engaged lives realizing that each of us has the power to choose our responses to what life and work brings our way, and that we’re responsible for how our choices affect others. 

 

The Philosophy can be applied to work environments throughout Prairie North as well as to many different areas of people’s individual life, and shared with family and friends. Prairie North Health Region is optimistic the FISH Philosophy will catch on within our own facilities, programs, and services, and generate broader interest and support with individuals, businesses, companies, organizations, and communities.

Prairie North’s goal is to create a healthy work atmosphere that supports and retains employees. PHNR realizes that a key factor in our success and ability to offer great care is through the overall health and wellness of our staff.

Many events are taking place throughout the PNHR facilities to the end of February including FISH derbies, treasure hunts, Blue Whale Candy-0-Grams, potluck lunches, open house coffee breaks, and decorating contests.

Twenty-five work areas in PNHR have already adopted the Fish Philosophy and are working to gather more FISH. In the year ahead, PNHR plans to train more FISH leaders or “Big FISH” to help promote and support the philosophy throughout the Region.

So join Prairie North in using the FISH Philosophy. It is not something that has to cost money; rather, it is more of a way of life and how you approach it. You can start using FISH by simply going out of your way to make someone’s day special, and making sure you approach people and activities with the best attitude possible.

If you are interested in learning more about the FISH Philosophy and how it might be implemented in your workplace, home or volunteer organization, contact Jaimie Piper, PNHR Staff Development Coordinator at 446-6065. For more information, you can also check out the following website:
