State of Wellbeing Champions

State of Wellbeing Champions (SWC) are a statewide network of employees who volunteer to improve the health and culture of the workplace with our State of Wellbeing programs. We act as liaisons between leadership and employees to talk about wellbeing programs and benefits.

What We Do

  • Serve as program advocates and encourage participation.
  • Respond to questions about the State of Wellbeing programs. 
  • Develop a local wellbeing group of co-workers (supported by leadership) and communicate to their agency.
  • Host wellbeing-related events (e.g., health fair, lunch and learn, biometric screening event, stress prevention training, Virgin Pulse challenge, et cetera). 

Time Commitment

Typically, champions dedicate a minimum of four hours per month (which includes two hours for a monthly meeting) in service to the wellbeing programming at your location. 

Do Champions Focus Exclusively on Physical Health?

No! We need champions who are passionate about mental, financial, and social health, too! In fact, the comprehensive five pillars of the State of Wellbeing program include cognitive, physical, social, economic, health. A strong team of inclusive, diverse champions increases agency morale and engagement by improving all state employee health outcomes and goals.
