The cornerstone of the Wellness Council of America is the "Well Workplace" Awards process. This innovative initiative recognizes quality and excellence in worksite health promotion. Driven by a pre-defined set of worksite wellness criteria, organizations of all kinds compete to be recognized as one of America's Healthiest Companies.

If your organization is looking to compete for national recognition, then we encourage you to consider the Well Workplace Awards initiative.

Activity-Centered Vs Results-Oriented

When it comes to designing and implementing a worksite wellness program, there are two paths that can be followed—activity-centered or results-oriented.

WELCOA's Seven Benchmarks

For the past 20 years, the Wellness Council of America has dedicated its efforts to studying and promoting the efforts of America's Healthiest Companies. During that period, WELCOA developed its patented Well Workplace process. At the core of the Well Workplace model, we have identified seven key benchmarks of success. Specifically, these seven benchmarks are inherent in companies that have built results-oriented workplace wellness programs.

Well Workplace University

It comes as no surprise that a healthy workforce has numerous benefits for employers. To help you learn more about the art and science of developing results-oriented worksite wellness programs, we've put together a unique four-part Webinar training opportunity—Well Workplace University.

Well Workplace Checklist

The Well Workplace Checklist is an interactive assessment that will help you determine how your organization is doing with respect to developing a results-oriented worksite wellness program. The Checklist was designed as a tool to assist WELCOA member companies in assessing their organization's wellness program against the Seven Benchmarks of results-oriented wellness programs.


Specifically, the Well Workplace Checklist is 100 questions in length and requires approximately 20 minutes to complete. Once completed, you'll receive an immediate Executive Summary detailing your scores in each benchmark. Shortly thereafter, you'll receive a comprehensive 38-page report via email.

Case Studies

Well Workplace Award winning companies agree to share their practices and protocols with the rest of the world—and this is what makes the Well Workplace process so special. By learning from companies that have successfully implemented the Seven Benchmarks of Success, it's possible to build a comprehensive workplace wellness program without having to make a lot of mistakes.

Well Workplace Protocol

For over a decade, companies throughout the U.S. have looked to WELCOA to help them build "Well Workplaces." Even though you may be relatively unfamiliar with the "Well Workplace" concept and model, the entire process is quite straightforward and easy to understand.

Wellness For Small Businesses

Despite the fact that small businesses comprise 99+ percent of all the businesses in the U.S., employees in these settings often have access to fewer benefits than do the employees who work in their larger counterparts. This means that a lot of people who work in small business settings don't have legitimate access to healthcare—and with a rapidly aging population, that's a precarious situation at best.
