On October 25th, the Healthy Enterprises Group welcomed more than 130 people to the Hyatt Regency in Montreal for its 2018 Prix Distinction awards gala. The finalist companies in the competition were all there for the unveiling of the 2018 winners.

With their inspiring practices, new ideas and contagious leadership, the finalists of the 10th edition of the Prix Distinction awards made an impression on the jury, giving them the complex task of choosing who would be crowned winners.

Eighteen companies were recognized for their creativity and for having seized the essence of health and wellness in the workplace to create environments that promote total health.

Every year, the Prix Distinction awards recognize companies who make a commitment to promoting health and wellness within the framework of an overarching, structured approach, and integrating best practices for increased productivity and employee health.

Our event was a beautiful ending to Healthy Workplace Month, with employers in Quebec receiving recognition for their best practices.

In total, 18 companies were honoured with awards in the 11 categories presented. We're pleased to present the 2018 Prix Distinction recipients!
