Custom Roadmap to Distinction

  • All organizations that earn Gold Standard accreditation are taking exceptional health and well-being measures that enable and empower employees, families, and communities to live longer and healthier lives.
  • Gold Standard applicants can gain valuable insight into where their organization shines and where more work could be done when compared to their Gold Standard peers.
  • Using historic and comparative data collected from previous application submissions, and the collective experience of the Accreditation Review Board, a custom roadmap is being developed.
