If you choose to do so, please be aware that you do so at your own risk. Also, please do not disclose the names of your coworkers, friends, or family without their permission.

Photos: We welcome you, if you wish, to provide a scene from your work (which you have permission to share) or photo of your face to stand up for #healthywork. However, we are required, by law and good conscience, to ask you not share any pictures depicting violence, nudity or other content inappropriate for children and youth.

Media Release: We will require you to sign an additional release form granting your approval to use your story in any media recording of your story for published podcasts, short videos, or long-form documentary films.

Work stories: we all have one. What’s yours?

Have you ever had a job or an experience at work that you would describe as “stressful” or “toxic” or that may have negatively affected your health and well-being? Or maybe you had an experience with healthy, engaging work, or you were part of workplace change that achieved “healthier work” policies or practices that you would like to share.

Read Work Stories here!

The Healthy Work Campaign is looking for your stories about work to share on the HWC website (and potentially for use in our multimedia content and feature-length documentary). You are welcome to submit stories anonymously or using a pseudonym. Your stories will help us all LEARN what healthy and unhealthy work looks like in different types of jobs throughout the U.S. Please write a paragraph or two about your work-related experiences.

By sharing your stories, you are adding your voice to inspire others to TAKE ACTION.

Please note that submitting your story is not a guarantee we will publish your story in part or in full.
