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

Beach Games Feedback

"The beach games were amazing - the weather was horrendous, but the day was brilliant - it was a great way of getting to know colleagues from other departments, and what better way than over a game of footie!" - Jacquie Pilcher, Extra Care Coordinator, Coastline Housing Ltd

Dame Carol Black,

"It is fantastic to see Cornwall and Isles of Scilly championing the health and work agenda and I look forward to seeing the Workplace Award act as a catalyst for further change in the county. Good health is good business and I encourage all employers that are serious about the agenda to apply for this confirmation of best practice."
