Each year for the past nine years the American Psychological Association has bestowed four companies with its Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award, a recognition of those organizations that seem to best understand the importance of emotionally healthy employees, and factor it into their business model, both with concrete, measurable programs and a culture of caring that recognizes the value of addressing employee problems before they have a chance to derail the individual, or the business.

Organizations located in North America apply for the award by filling out checklists, writing essays, and allowing a team of local psychologists to visit and evaluate the workplace. The psychologists then recommend finalists to the APA, which analyzes the data and selects two non-profits and two for-profit companies as the winners.

Here, this year's recipients explain why the award counts and share their thinking on how to run better, more productive organizations.
