Wellness Champions are a collection of employees, separate from the wellness staff, which can be used to support and market the wellness goals and programs of their company. Wellness Champions are typically volunteers who have shown special interest or social ability to help educate and encourage other employees to engage with wellness. Wellness Champions are given special training to be an expert in their company’s wellness resources and how to access them. Many are also encouraged to actively engage with their fellow employees through coordinating activities/ challenges, presenting details on new programs to their colleagues and being a visible and approachable touch point for employees looking for information.
