The impact of Covid-19 continues to shape all our lives.  Business leaders are challenged with navigating a diverse range of connected issues from employee safety, cash flow and liquidity, operational adaptation and business continuity.   

Key to success are our workforces.

As we enter the early phases of 2021 it is already clear that every resilient and operationally successful business is underpinned by its teams.  Their skills, knowledge and behaviour influences every element of a business’s processes and ultimately defines its resilience, success or failure. And these attributes are in turn fueled by the leadership and corporate strategy for employee health and wellbeing. 

The eighth edition of the Corporate Health and Wellbeing Awards will reflect the extraordinary journey we have all been on and recognize those organisations that have retained their pre-Covid employee wellbeing strategies, innovated new approaches to staff health and identified ways to ensure that high performance is maintained through the prioritisation of corporate health initiatives.

The WHO Healthy Workplaces Model for Action* describes four areas of focus against which organisations can pin their employee wellness tactics and longer term strategies.

  • Physical Work Environment
  • Psychosocial Work Environment
  • Personal Health Resources
  • Enterprise Community Involvement

Over the last three months we have been researching GCC based organisations to identify those companies who stand out. Open to all employer organizations the categories this year will have two winners one representing the private sector and one public sector. Our pre-selected entrants are being assessed against all four criteria however our team will also be identifying outstanding initiatives in specific areas of employee wellbeing.  

We are keen to hear about leadership engagement, worker involvement, sustainability, integration and alignment with business values.  We would like to see how your projects run continuously, to hear how they are evolving and if they are replicable.

To ensure maximum participation we have removed the entry fee. Entries are being submitted online and there is no limit to the number of entries per company.
