The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Healthy Workplace Award


How we do it

Award Criteria

There are four levels to the Award – Certificate, Bronze, Silver and Gold so workplaces can be recognised for progress.


There is a Micro Award for organisations with 1 – 9 employees and we also have a Mentor Award recognising businesses who are willing, or already helping other workplaces on their journey to improving staff Health and Wellbeing. We are fortunate so many workplaces in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly feel passionately about the benefits that can be felt and want to share their experience.


We use an online self-assessment process as businesses tell us this is the easiest and best way to start off. Following this, the assessment team will make a visit to talk through what you want to achieve and confirm the required criteria is met. The assessment team will look at a range of documents and speak to staff members to get a good understanding of how you are doing, collect award evidence and offer further advice.

The Healthy Workplace Team have produced an annual summary report which we hoped would be of interest to you as close partners and supporters of our Healthy Workplace Programme

Top tip! No hiding from work email for employees

Companies need to set clear policies on acceptable use of work email, as well as regarding when to switch off - employees need to know it is OK to let work email that arrived after hours wait until the morning.
