Remote work is here to stay and many companies around the world are still struggling to find the best ways to strike the right balance for employee wellbeing and benefits.

Feedback From The Judges
During The Omnis event, emcee and health and wellness coach, Tayyaba Jordan, stated that: “This was a highly contested category, with a number of really strong submissions that went into a great deal of detail about how their well-being strategies had impacted their remote workforce. The judges were also pleased with the creativity that companies have been putting into their benefits packages to support their distributed teams in the best possible way.”
Armorblox won the category because they had “gone an extra mile to support their employees, from both a mental and physical health point of view. From morning yoga and mental health programs to partnering with leading tech companies, this company is seeing the benefit of ensuring their employees stay healthy and happy.”
