  • Build a stronger organization. Wellness programs enhance productivity, lower absenteeism, and increase employee satisfaction.

  • Become an employer of choice. A robust wellness initiative engages employees and improves retention rates.  Corporate wellness programs are also a key benefit in recruiting top talent.

  • Demonstrate your wellness culture. Raise the profile of your organization externally to customers and clients with a comprehensive, well-branded program.

Why Certify Your Wellness Program?


Scoring Methodology

The Best Wellness Employer Score Index, categories, scoring, and benchmarking were developed in conjunction with Wellness Workdays wellness experts, Harvard Medical School medical and statistical experts, colleagues, and outside partners.

The benchmarking survey is comprised of questions related to the assessment, strategy, implementation, and evaluation of your wellness program. Responses are weighted to promote those programs with demonstrated strengths and outcomes in each of the four key areas.


The survey weighs the results of the employer responses and then these results are reviewed by an objective committee of experts. 

The designation utilizes an online assessment to measure wellness programming in four key categories.

First, the certification recognizes the outstanding achievements of businesses and organizations committed to creating best-in-class corporate wellness programs that promote a ​culture of wellbeing to engage employees.

Second, your participation helps to advance the field of worksite wellness and prevention by providing data and research about current practices and wellness outcomes.


Certify your program now to document your wellness initiatives and achievements while supporting our research effort.
