Getting Started with the Best Employers: Excellence in Health & Well-being Application

DOWNLOAD AND REVIEW THE APPLICATION HERE! The PDF version of the application is available for National Business Group on Health members or non-members that have paid the $500 access fee. The PDF lists the data elements that are needed for the different sections of the application. It may be helpful to print and review it in detail before proceeding to the online tool.

Here are some tips to help you when completing the Best Employers application.

  1. Start early. Compile all the necessary data and information before applying via the online tool. Work across all your internal teams and departments to make sure you are adequately prepared to submit an award winning application.
  2. Review the informational webinar presented on February 12, 2019 featuring a platinum Best Employers and Global Distinction winner.
  3. Read the questions carefully and craft your responses accordingly. To obtain maximum points, answer the questions completely and provide the necessary details requested. Many applicants lose points due to lack of sufficient details. Use the word counts as a guide.
  4. Give yourself enough time! Don't wait until the deadline to finalize and submit your application. Often, applicants wait until the last minute to submit their application, and with increased traffic volumes, the online application system may slow down. It's never too early to finalize your application.

Read the glossary for more details on any of the data elements or definitions.

All applications must be submitted using the online application, NOT the PDF version.
