Wellness Ambassador Network
Ambassadors are all about changing the workplace culture, providing peer support, and serving as role models. They are the eyes and ears of health in the workplace. The three main functions of a Wellness Ambassador include:
Champion and Cheerleader.
Champions provide energy and enthusiasm, getting peers engaged in healthy behaviors at work. They are the people who say “let’s take the stairs,” or encourage participation in mindfulness and stress reduction techniques.
Education and Communication Support.
Ambassadors educate about the benefits of health in the workplace. They can forward newsletters, emails, post flyers, and use word of mouth to circulate information.
Ambassadors are right at the place a person works! Ambassadors can organize walking groups, model stretch breaks, manage wellness challenges, arrange for speakers and advocate for healthy foods in the workplace.
