APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Honors

Organizations that meet criteria have implemented programs across the five practice areas (i.e., employee involvement, health and safety, employee growth and development, work-life balance and employee recognition), demonstrate positive outcome for employees and the organization, and receive positive results on an employee survey and site visit. APA selects the top organizations to receive a Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award and recognizes other applicants that meet the criteria with an Honors designation.

For two decades, APA has celebrated psychologically healthy workplaces. Since the program’s start in 1999, more than 700 organizations have been recognized.
