Healthy Workplace Award
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Healthy Workplace Award is a county standard of good practice and a quality mark of health and wellbeing in the workplace.
The aim of the award is to act as a toolkit to encourage employers to think about ways to improve the health and wellbeing of their employees.
The toolkit provides steps to achieve and improve in a wide range of health areas covered in the award criteria.
The process enables focus on the current good practice in place within an organisation and assists in recognising priorities and providing solutions to addressing any highlighted issues specific to the company and the working population.
To get started please sign up and become a member and you can access and view all the Healthy Workplace Award Criteria. A member of the Healthy Workplace programme can then come and meet with you to see how we can support and help make your workplace a healthier place.
How it Works
There are four levels to the Award – Certificate, Bronze, Silver and Gold so workplaces can be recognised for progress.
There is also a Micro Award for organisations with 1 – 9 employees and we also have a Mentor Award recognising businesses who are willing, or already helping other workplaces on their journey to improving staff Health and Wellbeing. We are fortunate so many workplaces in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly feel passionately about the benefits that can be felt and want to share their experience.
We use an online self-assessment process as businesses tell us this is the easiest and best way to start off. Following this, the assessment team will make a visit to talk through what you want to achieve and confirm the required criteria is met. The assessment team will look at a range of documents and speak to staff members to get a good understanding of how you are doing, collect award evidence and offer further advice.
