The first ever Great British Workplace Wellbeing Awards shortlist has now been announced!
The Great British Workplace Wellbeing Awards, in partnership with Wellity, has shortlisted 84 individuals and businesses who are positively changing the lives of the Great British workforce in response to our global wellbeing crisis. Those that made the shortlist are participating in one of 17 unique categories, including Team of the Year and the Best Use of Tech.
The Great British Workplace Wellbeing Awards aims to reward and recognise those that have taken the transition to a more serious approach to mental health at work and in addition to the awards, the organisers are building a community of individuals and businesses who are passionate about supporting the wellbeing of the Great British Workforce.
Though only in its first year, the Great British Workplace Wellbeing Awards received close to 500 entries, illustrating that workplace wellbeing is firmly on the agenda of businesses small and large.
With a seasoned panel of judges in the area of mental health and wellbeing, including Simon Blake OBE CEO of Mental Health First Aid England, Dr Sabrina Robinson of Essex City Council and others evaluating the shortlist, this programme will recognise organisations and their leaders who are innovating and pushing boundaries when it comes to the wellbeing of their teams. The winners will be announced at De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms on Wednesday 2nd March 2022.
Founder, Francesca James said: “Employers are finally waking up to the realisation that the wellbeing of their staff is absolutely essential to business success.
"These awards are here to shine a spotlight on the organisations and individuals that are innovating and leading the way in how we think about the workforce and wellbeing, setting an example for the rest of the economy."
