Wellness Champions and Advocates

Who are Wellness Champions?

Wellness Champions are a vital part of the wellNEssoptions program. Often the first sources of information for fellow employees, Wellness Champions are trusted amongst their peers to provide guidance and support regarding program offerings and requirements, and to set an example for others to follow. The goal of a Wellness Champion is to serve as a resource to the State of Nebraska Employee Wellness Program to build a culture of health. This is accomplished by communicating wellNEssoptions programs to fellow co-workers, expanding opportunities for wellness education or active participation within agencies across the State, and providing constructive feedback to the Wellness Coordinator. What Wellness Champions have in common is their belief or passion for the wellness program and its mission and goals. Wellness Champions serve as an important direct link between the wellness program and their agency or department.
