Unlock the potential in your employees with SuperChamps

For meaningful change to happen, organisations need advocates for wellbeing that are there when the webinar or programme is finished. But supporting these enthusiastic wellbeing volunteers can be a complex, time-consuming challenge.

SuperChamps, our wellbeing champions programme, is a way to help those advocates feel equipped with everything they need to engage other employees – resources, a lively community, and expert tips from our wellbeing consultants.

Whether you already have a network of wellbeing champions or you’re just beginning to identify and nurture the right people, we’ll help them thrive.

How it
works

A close-knit community of like-minded wellbeing advocates

SuperChamps is designed to help employees connect, network, and share their enthusiasm and ideas to engage their colleagues. That’s why membership is strictly limited, preserving the sense of community and giving every member the level of support they need.

Each programme option will be open to a maximum of 5 organisations per intake. We’ll ask you to choose your preferred option within the application. If your application is successful, we will usually invoice the full annual programme fee for your organisation at the start of the programme. All prices exclude VAT.

We are still open for applications for our October intake

FAQs

Who can apply?

Applications are open to you if you are:

  • A wellbeing champion already within your organisation and would be able to obtain executive sponsorship for joining the programme
  • A member of the wellbeing team (e.g. HR, Health & Safety, or wellbeing lead) or a senior manager looking to recruit a team of wellbeing champions or support your existing champions network.
What are the key benefits of joining?

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 (including our library of 40 free wellbeing posters – and counting) covering topics from stress management to healthy eating motivation.
What is the selection process?

Once you’ve submitted your application, it will be evaluated by our panel of lead champions (Amanda, Angela, Julie, Lucille, Frida and John). They will be looking out for the attributes and enthusiasm required to ensure that successful candidates are a good fit for the role of champion.

All applicants will be notified regarding whether they have been accepted onto the programme or not. If you are successful, we will get in touch with you to confirm your chosen programme option and get you booked onto our system. As soon as your programme is confirmed, you’ll be able to access our private LinkedIn group and start networking with fellow members.

Why is there a limit on numbers of organisations who can take part in each intake?

We anticipate a lot of interest for each intake and want to ensure that the support we provide is of the highest quality. Our aim is to create a close-knit community of active members who support our mission. Our lead wellbeing champions team currently has the capacity to comfortably support up to 15 new member organisations.

Is there a cost to join?

We’ve packaged SuperChamps membership with our wellbeing services in a way that offers substantial added value to organisations already investing in wellbeing. The added investment of joining SuperChamps is marginal and our reason for offering such a high amount of value within the package is to create a win-win with our clients, helping you to build awareness of the benefits of wellbeing within your organisation.

We want to open the programme to a wide range of organisations across all sectors and sizes, which is why we offer access starting from just £2500+VAT for a full year, including our live webinars tailored to your organisation.

Will there be opportunities to apply again in future?

We are currently planning quarterly intakes over the coming year. We’ll be announcing future dates later this year and any organisations on our waiting list will be offered priority access on the next intake.

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.

An essential requirement is to have senior level support for the wellbeing strategy, with at least one executive sponsor for the organisation taking part in the programme.

How many 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 champion per location, even if they will be supporting only a small local team.

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

The purpose of the 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. 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 apply, 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. Before applying, you’ll need to secure senior leadership buy-in. 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. Our SuperChamps team of experts will select your team of champions from the applications submitted
  4. Identify a SuperChamps Coordinator – a peer who can take responsibility for coordinating peer support, companywide activities and promotions, and feed back to the relevant groups.
  5. Promote your SuperChamps team internally: make sure the names and faces of SuperChamps are known by managers and colleagues and communicate their role
  6. 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, including the option of running a Challenge programme which helps to engage a wide range of employees with different wellbeing interests.

Our most comprehensive programme is Transform, which includes more regular events. The monthly content is also included with this programme, with the added benefit of being able to choose from 3 topics each month.

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.
