The Search Is On For The Healthiest Workplaces In The World

This spring, London will host the first Global Healthy Workplace Awards and Summit to find the world’s healthiest workplaces – those using the most innovative programs and practices to make the biggest impact on the health and well-being of employees and their surrounding communities.

Sponsored by the Cigna Foundation, The Global Healthy Workplace Awards and Summit will be held April 10-12 in London at the Waldorf Hotel. This is the only awards program dedicated solely to the recognition of practices and programs in the global workplace, and the first to use the World Health Organization (WHO) Healthy Workplace guidelines. Workplace health program submissions from around the world are being solicited and reviewed by an international panel of judges from the health promotion, health policy, and occupational health and associated disciplines. Entries are being reviewed as judges select the best programs and practices for worldwide dissemination and replication.

The entire project to find the world’s healthiest workplaces is underwritten through a grant from the Cigna Foundation, which is celebrating its 50 th anniversary year of giving by focusing on global health.

“Communities and workplaces around the world are facing rising chronic disease and escalating health care costs. Cigna is convening global experts to shine a light on best practices that will make workplaces more productive and competitive and in doing so, will improve the state of global health,” said Dave Guilmette, president of Cigna's Global Employer Segment.

The Global Healthy Workplace Awards and Summit is being managed by the Global Knowledge Exchange Network (GKEN) in association with two international organizations with extensive health experience, International Health Consulting and i-genius. GKEN represents a global network of business and government executives focused on exchanging knowledge about better health systems practices. International Health Consulting provides specialist advice on workplace health with a focus on multi-national employers. With members in more than 200 countries, i-genius is a world community of social entrepreneurs.
