Employee Wellbeing Awards 2018

WE ARE NOW WELCOMING ENTRIES FOR THE 2019 AWARDS

On 8 February 2018, the very first Employee Wellbeing Awards were held in central London.

The aim of these Awards is to unearth examples of success, celebrate and share them, so that other employers can understand how best to improve the wellbeing of millions of people.

REBA aims to drive the employee wellbeing agenda, because we firmly believe that truly caring for people within the workplace is not only good for those particular individuals and their employers, but also the benefits to the wider society will be great too - ultimately spreading health, wealth and happiness across the UK and to our global employee populations.

Along with our Professional and Associate members and their millions of employees, REBA can play a part in spreading best practice through identifying and sharing successful, good employee wellbeing practice.

With over 80 entries from more than 40 organisations, across 11 categories, the panel of judges had a tough time selecting winners for the first ever Employee Wellbeing Awards.
