Why Apply for the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards?

Receiving a Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award can give your organization the recognition it deserves for the value you place on creating a positive work environment. Winners may be featured in the media, honored at special events, recognized by community leaders and nominated for national recognition.

Psychologically healthy workplace practices can help you:

  • Demonstrate your commitment to the health and well-being of your employees
  • Attract and retain top-quality talent
  • Engage employees
  • Enhance organizational performance
  • Respond to employee expectations
  • Control healthcare costs

"The most gratifying aspect of this award is the validation by outside experts who visit your workplace and conclude that routine practices are conducive to a psychologically positive environment. There is an enormous satisfaction in being told you are doing a lot of things right!"
