Gannett has been awarded a 2023 Gold Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health from Mental Health America (MHA) for its commitment to employee mental health and well-being.
This national certification program recognizes workplaces leading the charge in improving employee mental health and well-being by evaluating applicants on the following criteria:
- Supportive Workplace Culture
- Benefits that Support Mental Health
- Caring Beyond Compliance
- Holistic Wellness at Work
“According to MHA, only 13% of companies that apply for the Bell Seal achieve a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum classification. Our competitive and mental health-friendly benefit portfolio, commitment to work-life balance, growth and development opportunities to employees are just a few of the areas that contributed to our award,” said Samantha Howland, Chief People Officer, Gannett. “We are especially proud to achieve Gold on Gannett’s first application for this recognition. It reinforces the focus we’ve had on mental health as a key indicator of overall employee well-being and highlights Gannett’s ongoing commitment to inclusion in the workplace.”
The Bell Seal is a first-of-its-kind workplace mental health certification that recognizes employers who strive to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees. Mental Health America is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all.
