Recognize projects that have taken meaningful steps toward deeper commitments to health and wellness.
Organizations build a culture of wellness in different ways. For some, it starts at the top with a commitment from leadership to enact change. For others, it’s borne out of grassroots initiatives, gaining momentum from the ground up. While every organization travels a different path, there are a variety of independent programs and initiatives on offer to support an organization’s journey. IWBI awards an Innovation point to projects that participate in wellness programs that act as gateways to deeper commitments.
