Workplace Wellbeing Awards 2020/21

We are delighted to celebrate the achievements of our Workplace Wellbeing Index participants, recognising not only the top performing organisations but each and every employer taking action to prioritise better mental health in their workplace.


Each year we celebrate the achievements of our Index participants at our Workplace Wellbeing Awards.

Overcoming challenges

This year we hosted our first ever online ceremony and we were delighted to welcome representatives from 114 organisations who had all come together to celebrate their achievements in workplace wellbeing. 

After the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, and the impact it has had on mental health we are delighted to recognise not only the top performing organisations but each and every employer who is taking action to prioritise better mental health in their workplace. You can find out more about the achievements of the organisations that took part this year below. 

We have already helped over a million people to have better mental health at work and we want to double this. Be part of our movement for change by participating in next year's Workplace Wellbeing Index – a long-term commitment to a better way of working.
