Nebraska Governor’s Wellness Award
This award was created to encourage all businesses in Nebraska to offer wellness and health programs for their employees. There are two categories: The Grower and the Sower. The Sower Award is intended to be a stepping-stone to the Grower Award. All award criteria are based on sound research and best practice models.

American Heart Association Workplace Health Solutions Award
The AHA’s Workplace Health Achievement Index allows companies to qualify for bronze, silver or gold level recognition based on their Index score. While multiple companies may be recognized annually if they achieve the required recognition threshold for each level, companies achieving Gold level recognition will be eligible to apply for the prestigious American Heart Association Healthiest Workplace Award.
Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces Awards & Certification
The Global Healthy Workplace Awards & Certification Program is designed for organizations implementing programs that excel in the creation of healthy workplaces. Both the award and certification allow employers to compare and benchmark their programs to the global standard and, if successful, to celebrate their achievement and to distinguish themselves as an employer-of-choice when seeking to attracting new talent or retain existing employees. The Awards demonstrate an employer's focus on promoting a safe and healthy work environment and the health of its employees while producing business essential outcomes. While, the Global Certification demonstrates an employer's focus on sound ethical principles, performance and value to employees and stakeholders. The awards and certification are designated for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, Large Enterprises, and Multi-national enterprises are invited to apply to become the world's best employer for health and well-being.
