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