Thrive at Work Awards

Workplace Wellbeing Award – the health and wellbeing commitment for employers

Coventry City Council, in partnership with the West Midlands Combined Authority, are promoting the health and wellbeing of employees with the Thrive at Work commitment.

The Thrive workplace health and wellbeing awards are the West Midlands County standard of good practice and a quality mark for health and wellbeing in work.

The awards supports employers by helping them to:

  • Improve the health and wellbeing of their staff
  • Engage and communicate with their employees more effectively
  • Achieve a range of business and organisational outcomes

Thrive at Work is designed in recognition that one size does not fit all. Although it specifies criteria and guidelines, and supports and nudges organisations to implement change, it allows flexibility in the way that businesses implement the guidelines, deciding how best to allocate resource to meeting the criteria.

The aim of this programme is to look at the health and wellbeing in the workplace and help businesses formulate an action plan to guide them.

Why join the programme?:

Organisations that achieve accreditation of the Thrive at Work Commitment receive the Thrive at Work Wellbeing Award. This accreditation sets an organisation apart as an employer of choice when it comes to mental health and wellbeing, whilst also enjoying the benefits of a happier and healthier workforce.

Employers who take an active role in supporting staff by fostering a positive working environment through health and wellbeing initiatives, allows the organisation to thrive.

Healthy employees will be more able to effectively engage in their work in a much more sustainable way and will be significantly less likely to need to take sick days.
