Taking an organisational development approach, which is the most
effective way of promoting sustainable health improvement, the Corporate Health Standard
promotes good practice and supports businesses and organisations in taking active
steps to promote the health and wellbeing of their employees.
The Standard is awarded at different
levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. It begins at the Bronze level,
recognising activities and policies in place that comply with legislation and
address the key workplace risks to employee health. The Standard builds to the
Platinum level, which is reserved for exemplar employers demonstrating business
excellence and taking full account of their corporate social responsibility.
Workplace Health Award is the
national mark of quality for health and wellbeing aimed at organisations
employing fewer than 50 people.
It is a developmental process, based
on good practice and improvement and it can be used to support the creation of
activities that promote the health and wellbeing of employees. The award has
been developed to target the key preventable ill-health issues in the
workplace, which will also help to increase organisational performance and
The three levels of the award -
Bronze, Silver and Gold - reflect the range of actions that an organisation is
taking to promote the health and wellbeing of its staff. The modules that make
up each level are standalone and it is recommended that the award is seen as developmental
to be achieved over time.
