The Worksite Wellness Council of Massachusetts has announced the winners of its annual WorkWell Massachusetts Awards, recognizing employers that show outstanding performance in worksite health promotion, which includes programs to address workers’ physical and mental health, social connectedness, community involvement, and financial security.
The application process for the awards asked employers to complete the HERO Health and Well-Being Best Practices Scorecard in Collaboration with Mercer to assess an organization’s overall wellness programming. A supplemental application requested additional details on strategic planning, organizational support, program design and implementation, participant engagement, and measurement/evaluation process. A peer review committee of independent industry experts evaluated all applications and provided a free consultative assessment of the programs
