Thrive at Work - Workplace Wellbeing Awards Programme
'Thrive at Work’ is a free, structured workplace wellbeing awards programme, where your business is recognised for improving the health and wellbeing of your employees.
The programme is run by the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) and is funded by the Midlands Engine, allowing it to be offered for free to organisations across Staffordshire. It is available to organisations from any sector and is suitable for those that employ more than 8 employees.
The programme has been designed to maximise the potential of your employees and drive results to your bottom line through reduced sickness absence, improved retention and increased productivity, by assisting you to create a healthier and happier workforce.
We think it's a great starting point if your business wants to focus on your staff's health and wellbeing, but you're unsure where to begin.
How it works
There are four levels that organisations can work towards: Foundation, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
The Foundation level has been developed as an easy 5 step approach, which gives a comprehensive understanding of the current position of the organisation and the mental and physical wellbeing of your workforce. You should be able to complete the Foundation level in around 90 days.
Upon achieving this level, you will be recognised with a certificate and an accreditation logo, allowing you to showcase the efforts that you have made as an organisation to improve the wellbeing of your staff.
Once the Foundation level has been achieved, organisations can then progress to formal accreditation at Bronze level, then potentially on to Silver and Gold levels. It is likely to take between 12 and 18 months to complete the Bronze level, depending on your organisation’s starting point and how much time you can devote to the programme.
Organisations achieving accreditation at Bronze, Silver or Gold levels will be invited to receive their award at a celebration event.
