Thank you for your interest in Business Group on Health’s awards!

Our Awards are on hiatus for 2021 and will come back refreshed for the 2022 award cycle. During this break we are updating award criteria to reflect a health equity perspective along with post-pandemic learnings and best practices.

Recognizing that benefits and well-being leaders are facing unprecedented demands, we hope the break from award applications allows member companies an opportunity to reflect on their most impactful initiatives and bring that knowledge to the next award cycle.

If you have any additional questions concerning the awards please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or [email protected]. Please check back here for continued updates in late 2021
