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

"When you have a high level of employee involvement in regards to the decision-making and problem-solving; and, when employees know that they are not alone to deal with their personal issues; and, when they see opportunities to become healthier with their employer's help; then, that business will be able to count on its greatest resource, its employees."
