Having wellness champions in your workplace is a great way to support your employees and move your company toward a wellness culture.

How can you encourage participation in your company wellness program?

A wellness champion is an employee who volunteers to lead by personal example. They can help promote healthy behavior and encourage participation in your programs by publicly proacticing healthy habits, sharing their experiences and influencing others to do the same.

Socially acceptable company behaviors often times have a bigger impact than any written policies. It's proven that our social networks have a powerful influence on our personal behaviors—as high as 60 percent. By leveraging this huge influence that colleagues have over one another, an effective Wellness Champions program can prove to be a powerful tool in helping motivate others.
