    About the Awards.

    The HeadFit Awards were established to celebrate individuals, teams and workplaces who are leading in the area of workplace mental health. There are three key primary goals for the awards:

    • raising awareness of the critical role workplaces can play to support positive mental health for staff
    • showcasing the work of winners and finalists to inspire and support other workplaces
    • supporting the Mental Health Foundation as they work to improve mental health for all New Zealanders

    The awards are open to all workplaces and staff located in New Zealand. This includes public and private sector organisations of any type, industry or size.

    “This stuff matters. All businesses need to prioritise the wellbeing of workers by implementing mana- enhancing policy. The HeadFit Awards are a chance for us to recognise and celebrate the incredible leadership and work of individuals and organisations to improve how we talk about and address mental health at work.”
    “The workplace isn’t the final frontier for better mental health, it is the first frontier. We all have a role to play. The HeadFit Awards are here to recognise our trailblazers, share their insights with other workplaces and support the Mental Health Foundation’s important work to create a more mentally-healthy future for all New Zealanders.”
    Purpose and vision.
    Our vision for the HeadFit Awards is to accelerate advances in workplace mental health by raising awareness, showcasing excellence and leadership, and giving back to support the work of leading New Zealand charities.
