What are the Accreditation stages?

The accreditation has three stages that demonstrate your organisation's progression and commitment to staff health and wellbeing:

Engaged - Once your workplace has completed the Workplace Health Needs Assessment (WHNA), our team will support you to identify your goals and targets for the first year. These will focus on the areas of health and wellbeing that have been identified by the WHNA as having the greatest need for improvement. Once your goals and targets have been agreed, you will receive your "Engaged" accreditation.

Committed - Once the above goals and targets have been agreed, you can start working towards your "Committed" accreditation. You will do this by submitting evidence that showcases your completion of the above goals and targets to your online dashboard. Once this is approved, you will achieve the "Committed" accreditation. You have 1 year from receiving your "Engaged" accreditation to submit the evidence for your "Committed" accreditation.

Empowered - Once you have received your "Committed" accreditation, we will then set new goals and targets with your help so you can work towards your "Empowered" accreditation. Again, you will have 1 year to submit the evidence that is required for your "Empowered" accreditation. Once your evidence is submitted, your workplace will complete the WHNA again to identify any changes or improvement. You will then receive the "Empowered" accreditation.

In order to maintain your "Empowered" accreditation, you will be required to evidence your continuous commitment towards the health and wellbeing of your staff every 2 years with us.
