DC Employers -- Get Recognized for Creating a Healthy, High-Performing Workplace


DC Psychological Association now accepting applications for its Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award

Organizations headquartered or located in the District of Columbia can apply now for the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award, which recognizes employers for understanding the link between employee well-being and organizational performance and taking steps to create a positive work environment where employees and the organization can thrive. Large, small, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, as well as government agencies are eligible to apply.

Since 1999, Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards have been presented to organizations by state, provincial and territorial psychological associations across the U.S. and Canada with support from the American Psychological Association. Applicants are evaluated on their workplace practices in the following areas: employee involvement, health and safety, employee growth and development, work-life balance and employee recognition.

Award winners will be honored at a special awards event and may be featured in the media, recognized by community leaders and nominated for national recognition.

Demonstrate your commitment to the health and well-being of your employees and get your organization the recognition it deserves.

For more information about the application process, employers can call APA's Center for Organizational Excellence at 202-336-5900 or email phwa@apa.org. Deadline for entries is October 15, 2014.
