WorkWell Accreditation

WorkWell accreditation presentation

Through accreditation, WorkWell recognises your achievements towards creating a healthy workplace. WorkWell accreditation provides assurance that all the components of a successful workplace wellbeing programme are in place.
 

Upon registration you will be advised of what is required to achieve WorkWell Bronze Standard Accreditation. To apply for accreditation, your workplace will compile a portfolio of evidence demonstrating that each step of the WorkWell process has been adhered to. You have two options of how you can compile the portfolio of evidence. You can upload evidence to the Online Accreditation Portfolio, which can be accessed through the members section of the WorkWell website.  Alternatively, you can print out your evidence and provide it in a hard copy folder - the ‘WorkWell Bronze Standard Accreditation Portfolio’.  You can discuss which option will work best for your workplace with your WorkWell advisor.  Once you have compiled your portfolio, the evidence is then submitted, assessed, and a site visit completed before WorkWell Accreditation is awarded.

Throughout your WorkWell journey your workplace’s progress will be recognised with three standards of achievement. Each standard requires your workplace to work towards set criteria and to submit a portfolio of evidence once the criteria have been met.

The evidence is assessed and a site visit completed before the standard is awarded. The three WorkWell standards of accreditation are Bronze, Silver and Gold.

 

Three levels of WorkWell Accreditation

Establishing a sustainable and effective workplace wellbeing programme takes time.  For this reason, WorkWell accreditation has been broken up into manageable steps.

  •     Bronze – Build the foundation
  •     Silver – Maintain and strengthen
  •     Gold - Embed and sustain

Your workplace will achieve Bronze Standard Accreditation when it has demonstrated commitment to workplace wellbeing and has built the foundations necessary for an effective workplace wellbeing programme.  The Bronze level of accreditation is valid for 15 months.  Within this 15 month period, a submission for the subsequent standard accreditation must be submitted and awarded.

Silver Standard Accreditation shows that your workplace is maintaining and strengthening its activities and starting to integrate wellbeing into ‘business as usual’.  The Silver level of accreditation is valid for 15 months.  Within this 15 month period, a submission for the subsequent standard accreditation must be submitted and awarded.

Gold Standard Accreditation is awarded when your workplace has demonstrated having all the successful components of a health and wellbeing programme, and these have become embedded in your workplace.  This ensures staff are valued and wellbeing has become part of core business.

Once a workplace has achieved Gold Standard Accreditation they must apply for a renewal within 27 months for the Gold Standard Accreditation to remain valid.

We look forward to helping all current and future WorkWell workplaces achieve Gold Standard Accreditation.
