Global Healthy Workplace Certification
For employers who provide employee wellbeing programs to a high standard of excellence
Certification is granted by the Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces. It assesses an organization’s commitment to providing employees with comprehensive support in health and wellbeing across a broad range of factors including health and safety, mental wellbeing, commitment from top leadership and ability of employees to influence programme design.
Certification is granted for a period of two-years which can be renewed.
