Workplace Chaplaincy: Addressing Interpersonal Challenges in the Workplace

How can a workplace chaplaincy program address interpersonal tension and challenges in the workplace, as well as enhance the offerings of a workplace?  A few striking trends that are impacting the workforce today include:

  3. Workplace wellness is moving from an optional or incentive-based offering to an expectation.

This article considers "The Millenial Problem" as well as immigration and the Canadian workforce, and explores how workplace chaplaincy can better the lives of workers across Canada through their "coach approach", referrals to community resources, and their expanded household coverage.

This is part one of a three-part series on Workplace Chaplaincy.

We are familiar with the idea that the Church has been provided with a healthy mix of gifted people who, through the Spirit, powerfully accomplish the work Christ sets out for us in His Kingdom. We understand the metaphor of the Body of Christ, with each member playing a unique role in the health of the system and all having equal value. At Corporate Chaplains Canada, we have come to understand that one of the parts of the body is the Ears ...

Creative Hospitality in the Port of Vancouver

At the start of each ship visit, Port Chaplains never know how God will use us to share His love and extend ‘creative hospitality’ to the seafarers that we meet. This is even more reason why we pray before heading out to visit the ships...
