How to leverage Wellness Champions in challenging times

employee wellbeing

We’re receiving a lot of calls currently from overwhelmed HR, safety and wellness leaders.

The reason? Both they and their Executive teams are concerned about the sharp rise in employee mental health concerns, unhealthy lifestyle behaviours, and burnout as a result of the ongoing pandemic and recent lockdowns.

They’re asking ‘How can we best support the wellbeing of our people in a hybrid working environment and navigate through such uncertain times?

The role of dedicated Wellness Champions has certainly never been more important.

Supporting those leading the organisation’s wellness strategy, Champions play a key day-to-day role in providing peer-to-peer support, and increasing awareness of and engagement in wellness opportunities across locations, shifts and other divides.

Research and our 25 years experience also confirms the most effective organisational wellness strategy is one supported by a motivated network of Wellness Champions.

Which is why we were excited to recently down with Julia Cohen, GM Workplace Safety, The Salvation Army and Tasia Mitsoulas, Wellbeing Specialist, StateCover Mutual for our exclusive The Hub Q&A Blockbuster. Julia and Tasia shared their experience of setting up Wellness Champions networks and practical tips and tricks they’ve learnt along the way.
