The American Psychological Association’s five National Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award winners have implemented a comprehensive set of workplace practices that foster employee health and well-being and enhance organizational performance. These organizations represent the very best from among the award winners recognized by our affiliated state, provincial and territorial psychological associations.

Nominees for the national award were selected from the pool of previous state-level Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award winners and submitted for consideration by the psychological association in the state, province or territory in which the company is located. Following a competitive evaluation and judging process, the top candidates were selected for national recognition.
