The 2019 Worksite Wellness Award application period is open. The application process has been revised this year, with a new Worksite Wellness Assessment tool created to help employers assess what policy, program, and environmental supports are currently in place to promote the health and wellness of employees. It is broken down into seven sections that include one section on each of the Department of Health’s Six Core Outcomes for Healthy Worksites and an additional section on Organizational Supports and Culture.
This assessment will also serve as the 2019 Worksite Wellness Award Application:
The application deadline is January 31.
Award winners will be notified by February 15.
This year, awards will be given in four categories:
- Governor’s Rising Star in Worksite Wellness
- Governor’s Award for Excellence in Worksite Wellness Bronze

- Governor’s Award for Excellence in Worksite Wellness Gold
Awards will be given for size categories: Small employers 1-100 employees; Medium employers 101-499 employees; Large employers 500+ employees.
