The Employee Recommended Workplace Award recognizes excellence in achieving a healthy, engaged and productive workforce. It is the only award of its kind that is based entirely on feedback from employees. Organizations with strong scores can say that they are truly employee-recommended workplaces, and will be entitled to use the Employee Recommended Workplace badge in their recruiting efforts and communication material. This will help identify them as an employer of choice.

In addition to being recognized, you will receive a report with valuable insights on your Total Health scores. This will identify areas of strength and areas where more work may be needed to improve the health of your workforce.
