Why SuperChamps?

For meaningful change to happen, wellbeing advocates are the most effective way to overcome barriers. It’s the honest conversations among colleagues, the powerful role models on the team, which make all the difference to your wellbeing programme impact. But supporting these enthusiastic wellbeing volunteers can be a complex, time-consuming challenge.

SuperChamps, our health and wellbeing champions programme, is a way to help those advocates feel equipped with everything they need to engage colleagues – regular CPD accredited training, a community of peers from across industries, and a wealth of resources and toolkits that’s constantly being added to.

Whether you already have a network of health and wellbeing champions or you’re a small or even solo wellbeing team planning to expand your wellbeing reach, SuperChamps is here to enrich your strategy and make your life easier.

FAQs

What are the key benefits for wellbeing champions?

As a wellbeing champion, it can feel like a significant responsibility to advocate for wellbeing in your organisation, often with limited resources and on top of the day job! SuperChamps is here to lighten the load and channel in one place a wealth of resources and knowledge that serves the community and fosters collaboration across organisations:

  • Networking with a community of like-minded wellbeing advocates from different organisations, sharing tried and tested best practice and knowledge
  • Regular training webinars on practical topics, from ‘how to set up your employee running club’ to building a 12-month campaign plan for your organisation
  • Year-round seasonal health campaign tools and resources to choose from covering topics from stress management to healthy eating motivation.
What types of organisation is SuperChamps open to?

SuperChamps is open to all organisations from 10 employees. Our aim is to cross fertilise ideas and approaches across sectors and organisations of different types, from SMEs to large corporates as well as public sector organisations. Members currently include organisations from sectors such as Rail, Engineering, Construction, Real Estate and Property Management, Telecoms, Renewable Energy, Higher Education, Finance, Technology, Research, among others.

How many health and wellbeing champions would you recommend based on the size of our organisation?

On average we recommend 1 champion per 30 employees however the ideal number will vary depending on the size of your organisation and the number of locations. It’s a good idea to have at least one health an wellbeing champion per location, even if they will be supporting only a small local team.

What is the role of a health and wellbeing champion and what are you looking for in a SuperChamp?

The purpose of the health and wellbeing champion role is to help implement and support the organisation’s Wellbeing Strategy through raising awareness of wellbeing activities, promoting healthy lifestyles and positive mental health. Employees may have different barriers to accessing wellbeing programmes. They may not be aware of what’s accessible to them or have reservations about whether it’s relevant for them. Sometimes they feel resistance in the form of fear or other negative emotions in relation to their health. Health and wellbeing champions play a key part in addressing these barriers, through conversations as well as leading and inspiring by example.

Another important role of the champion is to listen to employees’ input and feedback and relay this information to the wellbeing leadership to help shape future programmes.

The key qualities we are looking for in our SuperChamps are as follows:

  • Strong enthusiasm for health and wellbeing
  • Good communicators and listeners
  • Keen to make a difference and benefit colleagues
  • Proactive approach, ready to embrace new ideas
  • Keen to learn and share knowledge within the community
Is the programme open to members of the wellbeing team (e.g. HR) who are not specifically health champions?

Yes. We encourage anyone who is accountable for the organisation’s wellbeing programme to join, whether you are a wellbeing lead within HR, occupational health, or a nominated group such as the company’s Health & Wellbeing group or Health and Safety group.

We don’t currently have wellbeing champions in place. How should we go about setting this up in our organisation?
  1. It’s important to secure senior leadership buy-in for your wellbeing champion programme. This will ensure champions receive the support they need (including some time allowance) to carry out their role
  2. Speak to your wellbeing group (or group accountable for wellbeing in your organisation) about the programme and work with them to invite further wellbeing champions to apply
  3. Identify a SuperChamps Coordinator – a champion who can take responsibility for coordinating peer support, company-wide activities and promotions, and feed back to the relevant groups.
  4. Promote your SuperChamps team internally: make sure the names and faces of SuperChamps are known by managers and colleagues and communicate their role
  5. Internally your SuperChamps team may want to meet on a regular basis (e.g. monthly) to plan ahead, in addition to networking with the whole SuperChamps community
Once I’ve joined, how long does the membership last?

Whichever programme you choose, you’ll receive 12 months SuperChamps membership included. At the end of the 12 months, you’ll have the option to renew your membership through any of the programmes on offer (with the option to switch programmes).

What is the main difference between the programme options and how can I choose the best one for my organisation?

We’ve packaged Superchamps membership with different bundles of wellbeing services. Our Inspire package includes 4 wellbeing webinars on the topics of your choice, which could be planned quarterly to help create a buzz and energise your wellbeing programme.

The Engage programme provides you with a regular drip-feed of events and content throughout the year, inlcuding face-to-face events if you wish, which helps to engage a wide range of employees with different wellbeing interests.

Our most comprehensive programmes are Transform and Transform Plus, which includes more regular events as well as leadership training.

In each case, you can choose to add further webinars or activities at any time during the year.

Will we receive tailored support through SuperChamps, for example when it comes to putting in place our wellbeing strategy and creating our own branded programme?

The Engage and Transform programmes both include consultancy to help you plan your wellbeing programme, including your launch and strategy for building engagement over time. Speak to us if you require more tailored or specific support and we’d be delighted to help.
