The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Workplace Health Award

 

How we do it

Award Criteria

There are three levels to the Award - Bronze, Silver and Gold so people can be rewarded for progress. It encourages people to celebrate each of their achievements. In March 2012 a new ‘Mentor Award’ was also launched for those who have already achieved Gold.
 
The new Mentor Award recognises businesses who are willing, or already helping other businesses on their journey to improving the Health and Wellbeing of their staff. We are fortunate that many businesses 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 booked visit to talk through what you want to achieve and confirm the required criteria is met. The assessment team award usually 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 advice.

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

 

'A healthy workforce is a happier, more productive workforce'

TRAC Services Ltd

"The healthy workplace toolkit has been an invaluable resource for TRAC. It is helped us review where we are as a company in terms of providing a healthy workplace and clearly identify new measures we can put in place. It is a very robust and easy to use resource that has united the team here in a common goal of improving the health and wellbeing of everyone. The website that support the initiative is easy to use and as lots of very helpful information and case studies. It is really easy to track your progress using the website. We have also benefited greatly from the support and enthusiasm of Rachel and the team in helping us on our journey and were delighted to be awarded silver following our recent assessment." - TRAC Services Ltd

Employee Feedback

"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards.  The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work.  Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too.  They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
