For Immediate Release: May 14, 2019
Collabware is proud to announce that our organization has been recognized on this year’s list as one of the Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness.
Collabware received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.
“We are committed to the health and wellness of our employees”, says Anastasia Hunter, SVP of Operations for Collabware. “The success of our wellness program can be attributed to the way we approach it. We aim to ensure our employee program is comprehensive and covers multiple components of wellness, including emotional, physical, social and financial.”
To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year and at least 80% of employees must agree their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy. We determined the best based on the overall Mental Wellness Index score from employees, as well as the range and quality of programs which encourage mental wellness.
"We recognize that by having a successful wellness program, we not only help employees become their best selves; we increase our teams’ cohesiveness, engagement, and productivity,” Collabware CEO Graham Sibley adds. “It’s paramount that we work in an environment we can all enjoy and grow together in.”
The list of Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.
Great Place to Work® will also release an Employer Guide “Trust as the Foundation for Mental Wellness at Work” in partnership with Sklar Wilton & Associates. This guide explores concrete tips for creating trusting relationships that enable mental wellness at work.
