Nova Earns Platinum Bell Seal Certification for Workplace Mental Health

Nova Healthcare Administrators has been awarded the 2023 Platinum Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health by Mental Health America (MHA). The Bell Seal certification recognizes employers who strive to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees, with platinum serving as the highest level of distinction. This is the second year in a row Nova has earned the Bell Seal.

In order to receive this presitigious designation, Nova underwent a rigorous evaluation of its policies and practices in four areas: workplace culture, benefits, compliance, and wellness programs. Nova received an overall score of 90 out of 100, with a perfect 100 percent for workplace culture and wellness programs.

“Health is at the forefront of what we do and that starts with our own associates,” said James Walleshauser, president, Nova. “We take pride in providing resources, benefits and a work culture that support our associates’ overall wellbeing, including their physical, social, mental and emotional health. In a hybrid working environment, we’re committed to ensuring our associates feel connected, engaged and supported – and we are working hard to find innovative ways to accomplish that. So, we are honored to receive the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health once again because it affirms our continued efforts and belief that if we take care of our associates, they will take care of our customers and one another.”

Nova’s receipt of the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health reflects not only the company’s commitment to wellbeing from its leadership, but the efforts of its associate-led wellness committee, called Renovations. As part of a focus on overall wellbeing and intentional connections, in 2022 the committee launched a hiking club, the Nova Navigators, to promote associate engagement and joyful movement. Nova also strives to support associates through flexible working arrangements, regular company-wide meetings and internal communications, as well as a robust total rewards package that includes numerous mental and behavioral health resources.
