The Small Workplace Health Award
The Small Workplace Health Award is the national mark of quality for health and wellbeing aimed at organisations employing fewer than 50 people.
It is a developmental process, based on good practice and improvement and it can be used to support the creation of activities that promote the health and well-being of employees. The award has been developed to target the key preventable ill-health issues in your workplace, which will also help to increase organisational performance and productivity.
The three levels of the award, Bronze, Silver and Gold will reflect the range of actions that an organisation is taking to promote the health and well-being of its staff. We have been awarded the Bronze Award.
