The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is officially the Happiest Healthiest Workplace in Glasgow, after winning at the Glasgow Business Awards.

The Happiest Healthiest Workplace Award is sponsored by Health at Work and recognises employers who promote health and wellbeing in the workplace.

SQA staff attended the Glasgow Business Awards ceremony at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow where other finalists in the category, LETSURE and Loretto, were also recognised.

The Award recognises that SQA values its employees and goes 'the extra mile to make its working environment more vibrant, supportive and healthy'.

The Award was collected by Neil MacGowan, Head of Corporate Affairs at SQA. 

Neil said: 'We were up against stiff competition and it is testament to the dedicated work of all the SQA volunteers who work to implement our healthy practices that we achieve this very significant award. I would like to thank all volunteers for their support.'

SQA has been previously recognised for promoting health in the workplace, having won the Healthy Working Lives Gold Award in May.

It recognised SQA’s work to help staff make informed decisions about healthy lifestyle choices and socially responsible working practices.
