The PHWH is open to all employers throughout the United States and Canada. Organizations of all types — large and small, for-profit and not-for-profit — are encouraged to apply. Applicants are evaluated on their efforts in five areas: employee involvement; work-life balance; employee growth and development; health and safety; and employee recognition.

Organizations that have implemented programs across the five practice areas, demonstrate positive outcome for employees and the organization, and receive positive results on an employee survey and site visit are selected for recognition.

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

"This is not pie in the sky; this is about the bottom line. Building psychologically healthy workplaces isn't just the right thing to do, it's also the smart thing to do."

The Honorable Alexis M. Herman
Former U.S. Secretary of Labor
