Launched by the founders of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and co-founded by Wellity Global, the Great British Workplace Wellbeing awards aim to shine a spotlight on those positively changing the lives of the Great British workforce. These awards have been launched to recognise and champion the incredible steps taken by many employers, service providers and individuals in response to our global wellbeing crisis.
