Leveraging Workplaces in the Fight Against Diabetes
Workplaces have long been validated as platforms for wellness advancement and chronic disease prevention through the work of the WHO, many U.S.-based workplace wellness programs, insurance companies, and the World Economic Forum. Through our pioneering Healthy Workplace efforts in India, Arogya World is making a sound investment in public health and global development.
We now have 131 companies in India who have earned recognition as Healthy Workplaces, spanning 3 million employees.
Several leading organizations have joined Arogya World as partners.
In 2019, we announced our Hall of Fame – the highest level an Arogya World Healthy Workplace can reach.
In 2016, we introduced the Platinum Healthy Workplaces program, to shape the culture of companies to become data-driven around the health and wellness of their employees.

Healthy Workplace Criteria
Criteria that mark a workplace in India as “healthy” were developed in 2012 by Arogya World with the input of multiple stakeholders. These Healthy Workplace criteria, co-created with industry, are organized into 3 levels—Bronze, Silver, and Gold —and include establishing a work-life balance and shifting mind-set metrics, in addition to a workplace no-tobacco-use policy and easy access to healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity. See the full Healthy Workplaces Criteria.
After companies formally apply for the award, a 3-person assessment team visits the site to score each company’s activities and confirm award levels. Healthy Workplaces are recognized at an annual award and conference event in front of their peers and thought leaders, congratulating them on their achievements.
We have developed case studies of our Healthy Workplaces in India doing extraordinary work to improve mental health in the workplace. Each has tackled and successfully deployed mental health programs across their large workforce (>100,000 employees). Our criteria are aligned with the WHO’s framework for healthy workplaces.
