The Gold Standard is a workplace wellness accreditation program developed by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer that encourages and celebrates organizations committed to reducing the risk and burden of cancer among employees, families, and communities. The Gold Standard offers an evidence-based framework for organizations to provide a healthier workplace by focusing on cancer risk reduction, early detection and high quality care.
The online Gold Standard Accreditation Application asks organizations to demonstrate that its health benefits and workplace culture include extensive, concrete actions in five key areas known as the Five Pillars:
Pillar 1: Health Education & Navigation
Effectively share health and well-being resources across diverse employee populations
Pillar 2: Prevention & Early Detection
Encourage physical health by supporting healthy lifestyle choices, cancer screenings and vaccinations
Pillar 3: Advancing Treatment
Ensure access to quality treatment including cancer clinical trials
Pillar 4: Survivorship
Support those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis
Pillar 5: Well-Being
Adopt a holistic approach to individual and community health
The Gold Standard is based on the latest scientific evidence and evolves to ensure the framework that promotes the adoption of the best benefits and policies to maximize positive health outcomes for employees, families and communities.
Over 200 private, non-profit and government organizations, large and small, from diverse industries, have earned Gold Standard accreditation, including the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the federal government's principal agency for cancer research and training, and many NCI- designated cancer centers.
There are no membership costs or fees associated with becoming a Gold Standard organization.
