Highlights from the Employee Wellbeing Awards, 7 February 2019

The second annual Employee Wellbeing Awards...

took place on 7 February. The glittering evening ceremony, hosted by Kate Silverton at the BAFTAs, followed an afternoon of collaborative workshops and roundtables attended by Awards finalists, who by definition are pioneers and leaders in employee wellbeing. Employers who were invited to attend have all delivered successful wellbeing initiatives and it was the ideal opportunity for them to connect and learn from one another.

This year saw the creation of new categories to encourage employers who are making their first steps to support employee wellbeing, and to recognise the strides that many employers are taking to create a step-change improvement in the wellbeing of their workforce. The Awards of course continue to celebrate great work around the core pillars of wellbeing – physical, mental and financial; to benchmark the impact of benefits strategies and innovation; and to reward the joined up thinking that employers are implementing around total strategy.

We are delighted to have seen the Awards grow in their second year, with almost twice as many entries and such an impressive list of employers represented. We aim to continue to share the best practice represented in those entries at the Employee Wellbeing Congress on Thursday 20 June, where we will bring you some of the winning award winner case studies and a host of other speakers who are pioneering an increasingly joined-up approach to employee wellbeing strategy.

The 2020 Employee Wellbeing Awards will be open for entry in September 2019. If you would like to be kept informed of the exact date, please get in touch.
