What is a Wellness Ambassador?
Wellness Ambassadors are advocates for healthy living, no matter where they are in their personal health journeys. Ambassadors serve as liaisons between Benefits & Employee Wellness and employees at their work location, promoting health and wellness among coworkers.
With support and guidance from Benefits & Employee Wellness, Wellness Ambassadors communicate wellness information to their fellow employees and encourage healthy activities within their department. The role of Wellness Ambassador is a voluntary one with minimal time commitment and maximum pride for investing in the wellness of your colleagues.
