HINGHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) December 07, 2020
Wellness Workdays, a leader in corporate wellness programs, announces the 2021 Best Wellness Employer survey is open and employers can submit an application for the program’s 2021 certification. Developed by Wellness Workdays in collaboration with experts from Harvard Medical School, the Best Wellness Employer initiative recognizes the significant accomplishments of employers dedicated to improving employee well-being. Researchers will utilize the reported data to help build knowledge and advance the field of worksite wellness with a focus on current practices and wellness outcomes. Responses from applicants are kept strictly confidential and anonymous with no identification of any employer.
"The certification recognizes the outstanding initiatives and achievements of organizations committed to developing best-in-class corporate wellness programs,” said Debra Wein, founder and CEO of Wellness Workdays. “It was developed by industry experts to help employers gauge the overall assessment, strategy, implementation and evaluation of their wellness programs while contributing valuable data to employee wellness research.”
The Best Wellness Employer certification provides an opportunity for organizations of all sizes to highlight the successes of their wellness programs. Experts from Wellness Workdays, Harvard Medical School and other leading organizations developed the rigorous evaluation standards used to create the eligibility requirements. All programs are eligible to earn one of three merit levels – gold, silver or bronze. In 2020, nineteen organizations achieved gold status, including Brown University, Cape Cod Healthcare, Maine Veterans' Homes, Maine State Department of Transportation, New Balance, Norway Savings Bank, Putnam Investments, Systems Engineering and Viessmann Manufacturing. To see the full list of certified companies, visit the Best Wellness Employer website.
Representatives from many of the gold certified organizations presented at Wellness Workdays’ 7th Annual Emerging Trends in Wellness Conference, which was held virtually. Winners from all levels showcased their trophies onsite at their offices and featured the BWE logo on their website and careers page.
The survey for the 2021 certification can be completed on the Best Wellness Employer website. Surveys must be submitted by January 29 in order to be considered for one of the three merit categories and profiled at Wellness Workdays’ 8th Annual Emerging Trends in Wellness Virtual Conference on April 8, 2021.
