Healthy Workplace Champions are members of your workforce who are passionate about advocating the importance of health and wellbeing in the workplace, being wellbeing leaders in your organisation and helping to create a working environment where employee health and wellbeing is prioritised.

As a Healthy Workplace Champion, they will support the health and wellbeing of their colleagues through:

  • Effective signposting to health and wellbeing support and services
  • Helping them to set achievable, health related goals
  • Supporting their organisation to organise and run health and wellbeing events and campaigns

Why have Healthy Workplace Champions?

Having Healthy Workplace Champions in your organisation gives you:

  • Points of contact for your staff throughout the entire organisation for health and wellbeing information
  • The ability to engage with 'hard-to-reach' areas of your workforce
  • The opportunity to champion the importance of health and wellbeing throughout
  • Individuals that will help organise and support health and wellbeing events and campaigns

To become a Healthy Workplace Champion, individuals will complete an e-learning course, and a live workshop:

  1. E-learning - CPD accredited Level 2 Understanding Health Improvement e-learning course from the Royal Society for Public Health
  2. Live Workshop - a 3-hour, live workshop (either face-to-face or online) delivered by the Healthy Workplaces Leicestershire Team

Once trained, Healthy Workplace Champions will also be invited to quarterly network meetings, where they can share best practice, their experiences and learn from other Healthy Workplace Champions from other organisations across Leicestershire.

Why do some services cost more if I am a larger organisation?

Healthy Workplaces aims to support the health and wellbeing of the working age population across Leicestershire, acknowledging the differing sizes, structures and needs of the varying workplaces and their employees. Research suggests that SMEs (small-medium enterprises) engage less in the health and wellbeing of employees due to limited financial resources to invest in workplace health programmes.

More information about this is available on our frequently asked questions.
