  • Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program & Awards

The Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program is a public education initiative brought to Connecticut in 1999 as a part of the American Psychological Association's Center for Organizational Excellence mission to enhance the functioning of individuals, groups, organizations and communities through the application of psychology to a broad range of workplace issues. CPA works closely with APA to implement this program here in our state. Our mission is to educate, recognize, and provide resources to Connecticut’s businesses and organizations about the link between employee health and well-being and organizational performance for the purpose of creating and sustaining psychologically healthy workplaces.

Our Mission:

  • Education: We conduct presentations, panels, and workshops designed to (1) share best practices for creating and sustaining psychological health in the workplace, and (2) address complex and timely issues affecting employee health and wellbeing and      organizational performance.
  • Resources: We provide articles, evidenced based research, links to professional resources, tips, tools and other resources to help you create a work environment where your employees and your organization can thrive.
  • Recognition: We conduct an awards program for small, medium and large businesses and non-profit organizations that demonstrate excellence in promoting psychologically healthy workplace practices, policies and programs and a commitment to balance the promotion      of employee health and wellbeing with organization performance. Applicants are evaluated on workplace practices in 5 areas:
    • Employee Involvement
    • Health and Safety
    • Employee Growth and Development
    • Work-Life Balance
    • Employee Recognition
