Category descriptor:

The Bupa Wellbeing at Work award recognises businesses that position employee wellbeing and engagement as strategic boardroom issues. It is imperative to create happier and healthier workforces by positioning wellbeing as a boardroom issue linked to securing business objectives. Improved employee wellbeing and engagement build business resilience, sustainable performance, and productivity, helping tackle issues of burnout and the long working hours culture which are of increasing concern. Companies now cite stress and mental ill health as the number one cause of long-term sickness absence, yet there is still a stigma surrounding this issue being raised within the workplace. Adopting an integrated approach to wellbeing can drive real cultural change to enable their employees to be fit and well.
