Saluting the top products and services accelerating employee wellbeing

As the need for workplace wellness solutions, programs, benefits, tools and technology increased globally, the demand for your products and services likely increased exponentially.

That supply…and demand…is why we’ve created Ragan’s Workplace Wellness 100 Awards program, which will recognize top 100 companies and their associated solutions—from mental health and financial wellness to nutrition and dietary plans to lifestyle coaching, office design solutions and agencies and consultancies helping clients with their employee wellbeing storytelling.

Brought to you by Ragan Communications and Ragan’s Workplace Wellness Insider, these awards showcase the leaders in employee wellbeing products, services and guidance. Be the first to make the list that will be referred to and shared by hundreds of thousands of HR, wellness, communications and marketing pros worldwide.

In addition to being feted and receiving a crystal trophy at our Workplace Wellness 100 awards luncheon, being held during Ragan’s June 2022 Internal Communications, Culture and Wellness Conference, you will also be recognized online in a special section of Ragan’s Workplace Wellness Website, www.raganwellness.com, and in associated newsletters and social media. Those making the Top 100 list will receive a digital badge and other materials to help you tout your honor.

Submit your application by Nov. 12, 2021. We will announce placement on our list of Workplace Wellness 100 companies or independents in early 2022.
