About Mega Health at Work
At its core, Mega Health At Work is an advocate for healthy organizations. Using a proactive top-down approach, we believe leaders can transform the productivity, overall organizational health, and growth of their business by making wellness contagious.
Our evidence-based practices prove that when behavioral change is managed appropriately, leaders are motivated to be more successful and empathetic. These are qualities that are highly sought after by job-seeking employees and most importantly, they result in happy and healthy organizations.
The price of not taking steps early enough weighs heavily on businesses and employees. Frontline workers who sacrifice their health for others struggle with disabilities and serious mental health conditions. And businesses can forego up to half a million dollars to recover from a single employee lost.
When thinking about the future of your business, creating strategies for employee satisfaction is one of the main pillars of growth. When leadership falls short on these demands, businesses often suffer from absenteeism, challenges with employee retention, lack of motivation, and an overall unhappy work environment.
We are dedicated to working hands-on with leaders, for their employees. By practicing mental health first aid, being open-minded about office policies, and prioritizing wellness — productivity can be healthy and your employees will be your best recruiters.

With better rapport and teamwork, your organization can work as a cohesive ecosystem where everyone does their part with delight.

About the Founder
Mega Health at Work is founded and facilitated by Robin Bender. Based in Waterloo, Ontario Robin’s early experiences in HR roles inspired her to make a change. She experienced a culture where people were focused on treating mental health more than preventing it. As she saw a lot of friction with unions, piling claims, and unfair policies- she decided to help those who needed it the most.
Robin has an innate passion and love for helping others. Paired with her education in Psychology and fieldwork in Human Resources, she blended her experiences to found Mega Health at Work.
