Welcome to



The Corporate Health & Wellness Association® in partnership with Corporate Wellness Magazine® is excited to launch the 3rd edition of our well-being awards this October 28-30 in Orlando, Florida at our annual convention, HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION® (formerly the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress). Building, improving, and engaging teams of employees and championship within a corporate wellness program is not an easy task. Today, it’s even harder to create a culture of well-being with so many options and methods of delivery. Behind every successful well-being program are wellness leaders and champions that deserve to be recognized for their passion and delivery of change in their respective organizations.

Take 5 minutes and nominate yourself or another as a Wellness Leader or Well-Being Champion. You may apply for more than one category.

Brand Exposure

Each of our award winners will be featured in our magazines, presented to our network of over 1.26+ million members in LinkedIn (reaching over 2+ million B2B and B2G leaders and decision makers), and recognized on HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION website.


As part of this network of well-being 100, each winner will receive an award and a logo designation to put on their website and in their social profile. Executives of winning companies will be considered for speaking opportunities at GHR events. Top winners will be honored at the Well-being 100™ award gala event during the HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION®!

A Letter From The Founders

After ten years of helping and watching well-being professionals drive the well-being industry for their clients and their companies they represent or work for through our ecosystem of magazines, events, and networks, we decided it was time to honor the professionals that make wellness happen. With over 2.6 million B2B and B2G leaders in our network in healthcare, insurance, and wellness we have decided to scour through tens of thousands of well-being professionals to identify the most innovative professionals who are on the cutting edge of their industries. Launching the first Well-being 100™ awards provides an opportunity for gamechangers and change makers to present themselves to Global Healthcare Resources and the Corporate Health & Wellness Association’s team of professionals who will identify the top well-being professionals and their area of expertise that shines.
True greatness is difficult and often rare to deliver. Today, well-being programs require dedication, risk-taking, resilience, and diligence to deliver, engage, retain and attract great talent. Even if you achieve the miracle and create an amazing well-being culture and program, it is difficult to showcase results without dedicated professionals who take the time to provide data analysis on all program statistics.
Innovation is more important than ever with all the challenges in rising healthcare costs, lack of engagement of employees, boring employee benefits, culture fatigue, problems with presenteeism, absenteeism and attracting the best talent. Organizations will not stand for the status quo and demand that their well-being programs drive results.
At Global Healthcare Resources and HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION®, we understand that what works today may not work tomorrow. What was innovative or disruptive two years ago, one year ago, or even six months ago, may not be today. We are always evolving. To run great programs that are revolutionary, it requires passionate well-being professionals to make it happen. We can’t wait to honor the top 100 well-being professionals this year!

At Global Healthcare Resources and HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION we understand that what defines “innovation” and “disruption” is constantly changing. What was innovative or disruptive 2 years ago, 1 year ago or even 6 months ago, may not be today. We are always evolving. In order to get anyone’s attention, something needs to be special, revolutionary, and the criteria is changing every day and the bar rising. We polled our network, asking hundreds of leaders to recommend and identify new sources for innovation.
