About recognition

Queensland organisations are increasingly embracing Healthier. Happier. Workplaces and, there is no doubt that every step towards improving employee health and wellbeing is a step in the right direction. At Healthier. Happier. Workplaces, we believe you deserve recognition for your effort in building healthier workplaces. With the recognition scheme, we recognise, reward and encourage Queensland organisations that are making a difference to health and wellbeing in their workplace.

The recognition scheme is your chance to be rewarded for developing a successful workplace health and wellbeing program.

Why apply for recognition?

Achieving recognition as a Queensland Healthier. Happier. Workplace provides some unique business benefits.

Becoming recognised will help you:

  • Stand out as an employer of choice.
  • Retain the best talent and reduce staff turnover.
  • Boost the reputation of your business.
  • Easily promote your health and wellbeing credentials.

As a recognised Healthier. Happier. Workplace you will receive:

  • A certificate to display in your workplace.
  • A recognition logo so you can promote your achievement in your communications.
  • In the case of Gold, you will also receive an engraved plaque to display in your workplace.

How to apply

Submissions for recognition can be made online through the Healthier. Happier. Workplaces website. Simply register for free. Doing so gives you access to your membership account where you can manage your application process in your own time. You also get access to member resources and personalised information that can help you advance your workplace health and wellbeing efforts.

  • To apply for Bronze recognition, complete a short online assessment and submit a short success story.
  • To apply for Silver recognition, complete a short online assessment and submit a case study.
  • To apply for Gold recognition, complete a short online assessment and submit a workplace health and wellbeing profile outlining your health and wellbeing program.

You can submit all the documents online.

Applying for recognition is easy

A simple online questionnaire is all it takes to achieve bronze and silver recognition. Each questionnaire is designed to assess whether your workplace meets the criteria determined for that level of recognition. Questions normally cover topics such as healthy activities, policies and procedures, management support for the initiative, staff involvement, communication and action plans..

Ensuring the credibility of the recognition process is important to us and our members, which is why we also request a short online submission to accompany your application. The submission could be a success story or a case study in case of Bronze or Silver level. Guidelines are however easy to understand and are available prior to starting your application.

Given that the Gold recognition is awarded for excellence in workplace health, it is a more detailed assessment. To complete the assessment you will be required to submit a comprehensive health and wellbeing profile along with supporting documentation.

How long is my recognition valid?

Recognition is valid for 12 months. We encourage you to renew your recognition or upgrade to the next level annually so that recognition remains current and you continue to progress your health and wellbeing initiatives.

When you are 11 months into your recognition, you will be eligible to renew or upgrade online. We will send you a handy email reminder when it’s time.

What you will receive

As a recognised Healthier. Happier. Workplace you will receive:

  • A certificate highlighting your achievement.
  • Recognition logo so you can promote your achievement in your communications.
  • In the case of Gold, you also receive a company engraved plaque to display in your workplace.

Beyond the recognition and award, you become part of a growing community of leading Queensland organisations taking steps to improve the health of Queenslanders.
