About the Workplace Wellbeing Index Awards
Our yearly Workplace Wellbeing Awards (formerly our Workplace Wellbeing Index Awards) celebrate the achievements of employers who've taken part in our Workplace Wellbeing Index. Each year, we give the following awards:
Gold award: Achieving Excellence
The Gold award is for employers who have embedded mental health into their policies and practices. These organisations show a long-term and in-depth commitment to staff mental health.
Silver award: Achieving impact
The Silver award is given to employers who have made real achievements in promoting staff mental health. They are organisations who have demonstrated progress and impact to staff mental health over time.
Bronze award: Achieving change
The Bronze award is given to employers who have started their journey to better mental health at work. They are organisations who have developed and implemented initiatives that promote positive mental health for staff.
Committed to Action
This award acknowledges the efforts of those employers who have committed to addressing mental health in the workplace. These organisations are at the start of their journey.
