Wellness Committee

The main role of a wellness committee is to communicate, participate, motivate, and support the organization’s worksite wellness program in order to:

  • Create a healthy worksite and a culture of wellness
  • Foster collaboration and enthusiasm among employees
  • Provide a communication “link” between employees and management
Organizations that create a wellness committee benefit in several ways. The committee is able to help:
  • Represent and share co-workers’ ideas and concerns
  • Reshape the company’s culture to promote healthy living
  • Encourage a positive work environment
Resources for a Wellness Committee: Wellness Champions are employees who share an interest in health/wellness and are dedicated to helping other employees participate in the wellness program. Your entity may consider identifying and recognizing wellness champions within your organization to help facilitate and promote your wellness vision.
