Workplace Health Champions

A Workplace Health Champion is someone who supports and promotes health and wellbeing amongst their colleagues in their own workplace.


Our Workplace Health Champion course is ideal for those who already have an interest in health and wellbeing. If you have an employee or employees who are passionate about supporting colleagues to improve their health and wellbeing and make positive lifestyle choices, then this is the course for them.

Topics covered in this course:

  • mental health
  • smoking
  • alcohol
  • physical activity
  • healthy eating and nutrition

The course concentrates on not only increasing awareness and knowledge of these topic areas and how they influence health and wellbeing in the workplace but also how the health champion might help, signpost and support to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and the workforce overall.

Becoming a Workplace Health Champion has benefits not only for those individuals attending the course but also for their colleagues and you as their employer.

A trained champion supports their workplace to become a happier, healthier place to work. This can result in an increase in staff retention and also your employees commitment to you as their employer. Positive influences and improvements in health and wellbeing of your employees can help reduce absenteeism, increase productivity in the workplace as well as provide a positive workplace image.
