Best Covid-19 Company Response - Internal (supporting employees) - SME

This commendation is designed to recognise the work that employers have undertaken to take care of their employees under the most challenging of circumstances. It will recognise those employers that have been innovative in going above and beyond to support their employees through the Covid-19 pandemic, for example:

  • Making employees feel safe in the workplace.
  • Supporting employees at home.
  • Appointing ambassadors, champions or advocates who commit to supporting colleagues in addition to their day job.

This employer recognises the importance of sharing positive and uplifting messages and celebrating staff efforts. This could include areas such as:

  • Addressing the challenges to mental health posed by Covid-19.
  • The importance of not taking good health and wellbeing for granted and/or the need to have positive conversations about a range of issues which impact on health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Winning entries should demonstrate how staff in the workplace have been supported and, if staff were furloughed, how they were specifically supported. Judges will also be looking for how employers kept employees’ wellbeing and mental health at the forefront of their efforts, managed to keep spirits lifted and successfully supported their employees throughout 2020 and beyond.




Thank you to everyone who submitted entries to the Healthy Working Wales Covid-19 Commendation Event. The judges remarked on the excellent quality of the submissions that we received and how challenging it was to shortlist.
