Reckon your team is amazing? Want to shout about it and get them the credit they’re due? If so, we want to hear from you. You now have an extra few days to enter this year’s newly re-established Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards. So get entering, and don’t delay.
Roll up, roll up – Occupational Health & Wellbeing is re-establishing its prestigious industry awards.
The Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards will be a chance to celebrate your team and showcase your successes – as well as have your team and work profiled within the pages of Occupational Health & Wellbeing and online on the OH&W pages of personneltoday.com.
The categories for the 2019 Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards are as follows:
- Best mental health initiative
- Best musculoskeletal initiative
- Best wellbeing initiative
- OH team of the year (private sector)
- OH team of the year (public sector)
- Best multidisciplinary initiative.
Entries are welcome from OH teams of all sizes, whether directly employed or working on a contract basis. Teams can enter as many categories as they wish. The awards are free to enter.
For the OH team of the year (public sector), we welcome applications from teams working within the NHS and charity sector as well as more widely within the public sector.
Our thanks to health insurance and employee health and wellbeing company BHSF, which is the headline sponsor for this year’s awards.
Once the deadline has closed, entries will be judged by a panel of occupational health experts. A shortlist will be published online at the end of July and in print in the September edition of Occupational Health & Wellbeing.
From our headline sponsor
We put employee wellbeing at the heart of what we do, aiming to keep employees at work and healthy.
Our approach to occupational health is simple. We intervene early and get employees access to specialists. We’ll also work closely with businesses to help prevent future issues. Because we understand that experience is invaluable, ours is based on sound evidence.
All of our clinicians are trained in-house, specifically in occupational health medicine. And we go above and beyond because we genuinely care.
The winners will be announced in print in the October edition and online on 1 October 2019.
The winners will have an opportunity to be profiled within Occupational Health & Wellbeing and will receive special winners’ certificates (digital and physical).
Nic Paton, editor of Occupational Health & Wellbeing, said: “Occupational health practitioners, absolutely rightly, tend to get on with the job of managing and supporting health and wellbeing quietly, professionally and with the minimum of fuss.
“But the Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards are an opportunity for OH teams to step up, make some noise and get the credit they deserve for the work they do.
“Join with us to celebrate and showcase your successes and achievements and, in the process, show your peers, employers and the wider working world the value, expertise and passion that occupational health can bring to the workplace.”
