Ibec, in partnership with the Business & Finance media group, has launched an index of the top 100 companies leading in wellbeing.

This index, in its second year and the first of its kind in Ireland, recognises the top businesses of all sizes who are leading the way and have improved their performance in supporting employee mental health and wellbeing. We hope this will encourage others to follow.

In recent years, employee wellbeing has continued to rise further up the agenda for employers. Those organisations who embed a culture of wellbeing that prioritise measures that support the mental and physical wellness of their workforce, are the same ones who are more effective at ensuring the attraction and retention of employees.

Speaking about the launch, Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy commented: “It is encouraging to note the diversity of industries spanning the full breadth and scope of the Irish economy that are represented in this index. These 100 companies that we are celebrating today are leading the way in workplace wellbeing and their commitment to instilling a best practice approach to wellbeing has made a lasting impact on their employees.”

The index is comprised exclusively of companies in Ibec’s KeepWell community. The list focuses primarily on those companies who hold an active KeepWell Mark accreditation with exception being made to include a limited few companies, who upon entering the programme had already demonstrated a high standard of wellbeing performance and have put the appropriate measures in place to meet the standards of the KeepWell Mark and are scheduled for formal assessment.
