NEW Working Well Level Accreditations
The Working Well Accreditations have been in place for a number of years, and the way workplaces work has had to evolve to meet these needs. The Team have therefore taken the opportunity to update the way we gather evidence of the effectiveness of the Accreditation programme. NB – Please note some organisations may have already achieved their Level one, but will not provided all information required in the updated Level one submission. The criteria for each Award level has updated to allow you to showcase the development and impact of your health and wellbeing programme:
