Four Organizations Receive APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award, Nine Honored For Best Practices

WASHINGTON, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Psychological Association will recognize nine organizations for their efforts to promote employee well-being and performance at its eighth annual Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, March 9.

The four employers who will receive APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award (PHWA) are Bowers + Kubota Consulting ( Hawaii), Triple-S ( Puerto Rico), Christiana Care Health System's Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, ( Delaware) and Tripler Army Medical Center ( Hawaii).

These organizations reported an average turnover rate of just six percent in 2012 – significantly less than the national average of 38 percent estimated by the U.S. Department of Labor. In surveys completed by the winning organizations, on average, fewer than one in five employees (19 percent) reported experiencing chronic work stress, compared to 35 percent nationally, and 84 percent of employees said they were satisfied with their jobs, versus 67 percent across the U.S. workforce. Only 11 percent of employees at these organizations said they intend to seek employment elsewhere within the next year, compared to almost three times as many (31 percent) nationwide.

"Forward-thinking employers such as our 2013 award winners are taking steps to create a positive work environment where employees can thrive," says David W. Ballard, PsyD, MBA, head of APA's Center for Organizational Excellence. "In turn, employees are more engaged and committed to the organization's success. This shared responsibility for creating a psychologically healthy workplace promotes an organizational culture that values well-being and performance and delivers results on both sides of the equation."

The Helen F. Graham Cancer Center will be recognized for its comprehensive programs including an annual employee retreat, wellness website and flexible scheduling. The company reports that since the implementation of the annual retreat, employees have demonstrated measureable improvements in conflict management, internal communications and group cohesiveness.
