LifeWorks® by Morneau Shepell wins three Digital Health Awards

The Health Information Resource Centre (HIRC) awards recognize the world’s best digital health resource providers.

CHICAGO, June 24, 2019 – The Health Information Resource Centre (HIRC) announced that LifeWorks® by Morneau Shepell won the Gold award for Best Mobile Digital Health Resource at its 21st annual Digital Health Awards. In addition, two of LifeWorks’ total wellbeing campaigns – Dr. Martens: Rebel Soles and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories: Total wellbeing starts with safety – won Merit awards for Digital Health Media. Both campaigns showcase improvements to total wellbeing experienced by these organizations and their employees as a result of the wellbeing features and treatment options available through the LifeWorks desktop portal and mobile app.

"It’s an honor for Morneau Shepell to win HIRC’s gold award for our LifeWorks total wellbeing solution, and merit awards for campaigns highlighting the positive impact LifeWorks has on our customers and their people," said Stephen Liptrap, president and chief executive officer. “These wins demonstrate that our investments in the online user experience and our clinical expertise improve lives and businesses worldwide, and that our customers and their employees are getting the best possible support for their total health and wellbeing.”

Up against leading digital health providers, including Blue Cross Blue Shield’s MyBlue Member App and Virgin’s Pulse app, the LifeWorks wellbeing platform earned top honors in the Mobile Digital Health Resources category for connecting, shaping, and improving work culture. 

“We want to support the health and wellbeing of 100% of employees worldwide with LifeWorks,” said Rita Fridella, president, Lifeworks and executive vice president, Morneau Shepell. “Being named the Best Mobile Digital Health Resource really helps, confirming that our solution is the gold-standard convenient and trusted way to build connections, improve work culture and support people in their wellbeing journey.”

A judging panel of 32 experts in digital health media reviewed entries in 80 categories and selected Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Merit winners. The Digital Health Awards, organized by HIRC, recognizes the world’s best online health resources for both consumers and professionals. The HIRC is a 27 year-old national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health markets.
