Well Workplaces

We define a Well Workplace as an organization that has embraced the responsibility for maximizing the health and well-being of their employees. Companies who receive the Well Workplace designation are known as “America’s Healthiest Companies” because their wellness programs produce results. Well Workplace is not a competition whereby only a small number of companies can achieve an award, rather it is a certification program where an award can be achieved by any company, small or large, meeting the challenging standards set forth by WELCOA. This development and implementation is measured through the incorporation of seven critical benchmarks, defining best practices in workplace wellness, which drive the entire process of building a “Well Workplace”.
