What are the Different Awards?

The evaluation process uses an assessment tool designed to help employers assess whether they have implemented evidence-based health promotion interventions or strategies in their workplace. Questions are scored based on good, better, and best practices and strategies.

The UWWC’s Healthy Worksite Award allows companies to qualify for bronze, silver, gold or platinum level recognition based on their initial assessment score.


The four achievement levels, in rank order (highest to lowest), are:


Platinum represents the pinnacle of results-oriented worksite wellness programming. The Platinum Award is granted to organizations forging new ground by linking health promotion objectives to business outcomes.

Gold recognizes organizations developing comprehensive programs that produce results, which are a strategic and integral part of their business.

Silver recognizes organizations expanding programming and aligning their efforts with the organization’s priorities.

Bronze recognizes organizations meeting the minimum criteria by demonstrating a solid foundation for success.


The Innovation Award: The purpose of the innovation award is to recognize employers who stand out for demonstrating and successfully implementing an innovative approach to some aspect of worksite wellness. This would demonstrate the value of creativity and flexibility in the resolution of workplace productivity and health promotion.  The innovation award is based on company size and centered around 6 areas of wellness (physical, social, occupational, emotional, financial and intellectual wellness).
