Harnessing the Super Powers of Wellness Champions

Harnessing the Super Powers of Wellness Champions
December 12, 2011 at 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
While companies tend to plan wonderful kick-off events and communications for the launch of a wellness program, this call to action oftentimes drops off months in. The most successful programs are those that develop a network of Wellness Superheroes; Wellness Champions who refresh and reinforce program goals throughout the year and promote and recognize success throughout the organization.

We have all seen them on TV and in the movies, men and women who use their superhuman abilities to make a difference. According to the script, superheroes need superhuman strength, a strong moral code, a distinctive identity, a number of enemies, and an achilles heel. The same requirements and challenges companies face in defining and branding their wellness program and creating a healthier workforce!

Wellness Champions are your organizations’ superheroes – those employees who make building a culture of health, defeating health risks and promoting good habits a priority. They are individuals who represent the spirit of wellness by being enthusiastic, engaged and empathetic. Their participation takes a wellness program from a two-dimensional strategy to a high touch, high impact wellness campaign.

During this webinar, WCS will share their experiences and provide a framework to help organizations define, incent, and leverage successful Wellness Superheroes.

•       Who has the knowledge and skills to be a successful Wellness Champion?
•       How does a company find superheroes willing to carry the wellness banner, challenge their colleagues to better health and lifestyle decisions, and use their positive power to effect change?
•       What organizational resources should be put into place to support the Wellness Champions’ efforts?
•       How do you “engage the engager” and measure success for the program?

Human Resources, Benefits, CFO, Wellness Program Leader, Wellness Champions, Benefits Brokers

We are starting to research wellness vendors -- particularly those whose fees are results based. If there is any good resource for locating these vendors and getting more detailed information about those who are out there we would like to have access to that information. 4 / 5
