Votes are coming in thick and fast for the inaugural Make A Difference Awards, with some of the nominees neck and neck in the different categories. Your vote could make all the difference.
We launched the Make A Difference Awards as a way to recognise and thank the individuals and employers who have really made a difference to work culture, mental health and wellbeing over the past year; those who are leading the way, and inspiring others to follow their example.
We’ve been bowled over by the response – From the 136 nominations received, the judges selected 14 nominees. We’ve now opened the final decision to the Make a Difference Community’s vote.
Thanks to our co-sponsors (Royal Mail and Optima Health), we’ve been able to make the awards accessible to everyone. It was quick, free and easy to make a nomination and the Make A Difference Awards webinar is also free to attend.
This is where voting is up to as of 22 May
Calling everyone in the Make A Difference community
The nominees have been doing a fantastic job spreading the word across their networks and bringing more and more people to the workplace mental health and wellbeing conversation.
But we want to make sure the playing field is level. To do this, we need as many people as possible from our Make A Difference community to vote. Spread the word across your networks too. Voting closes at midnight on Tuesday 8th June.

The winners will be announced on International Make A Difference Day – Tuesday 15th June, from 4.00pm – 5.00pm during our free to attend Make A Difference Awards webinar.
As well as celebrating the winners, the first half of the Make A Difference Awards webinar will be a chance to learn from the experience of the judges who will share insights into:
- How to get buy-in to supporting employee mental health and wellbeing from the Board / the senior level sponsorship that we so often hear is essential.
- Getting through to the cynics and the hard to reach to achieve engagement with mental health and wellbeing right across the organisation.
- How you keep the momentum going and keep pushing this agenda forwards so that it remains a business priority after the pandemic.
The session will be Chaired by Louise Aston, Wellbeing Campaign Director, BITC, with input from our co-sponsors, Dr Shaun Davis from Royal Mail Group and Simon Arnold from Optima Health. Kamel Hothi OBE and Stacy Thomson will also be sharing their perspectives.
The content is recommended for Wellbeing Leaders & Champions, HR, Talent & Engagement Leaders, Culture & Business Transformation Leaders, as well as Internal Communications professionals.
In other words, anyone, from any type or size of organisation, who wants to make a difference to work culture, mental health and wellbeing.
