Introduction of the WWCMA WorkWell Application
The Worksite Wellness Council of Massachusetts created the WorkWell Massachusetts Awards Program to recognize employers in their exemplary work in wellness. Employers will be recognized for their work by earning a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Award.
The WorkWell Massachusetts Award application is designed to collect detailed information about your wellness interventions and strategies in the worksite to prevent chronic conditions and promote overall well-being. Throughout the application, for simplicity, we refer to all activities and initiatives related to improving health as “wellness program”. Our definition of wellness encompasses the holistic approach to overall well-being, which includes physical, emotional, community, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, financial and social well-being.
All applicants are encouraged to provide as much information as possible about their wellness program. These details allow reviewers with no previous information on the program to most effectively evaluate your efforts to provide a worksite environment that encourages employees to be healthy. Each question will be evaluated so be sure to provide a comprehensive response for each question.
There are four key steps to complete your submission:
1. Application Fee
If you are a WWCMA member there is no charge to submit your application. If you are not a WWCMA member, the application fee is $75 (click here to pay the fee). If you do not submit your payment your application will not be reviewed. Not a member? Join Today
