The Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program
The Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program (PHWP) is a public education initiative from the American Psychological Association designed to educate the employer community about the link between employee well-being and organizational performance.
The PHWP includes APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards and a variety of resources for employers and the psychologists who work with them.
The PHWP has the support of local programs currently implemented by 56 state, provincial and territorial psychological associations (SPTAs) as a mechanism for driving grassroots change in local business communities. Collectively, these associations have honored more than 500 organizations across North America.
The Psychology in the Workplace Network
The Psychology in the Workplace Network (PWN) is a network of more than 50 psychologists representing SPTAs and some APA divisions. The PWN works to strategically advance psychology by developing strong collaborative relationships with the business and employer community and educating them about the roles and value of psychology in the workplace. Currently, the network is carrying out its mission of promoting well-being and performance in the workplace through the vehicle of the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program (PHWP), which includes local- and APA-level awards that recognize employers for their efforts to foster healthy, high-performing organizations.
