How to build champion employees
1. Finalise Decisions
Before you can start recruiting Champions, there are many decisions that you need to make.
- Select the recruitment process
- How many Champions do you require?
- Establish expectations and responsibilities for Champion
- Find Champion incentives
2. Create a Champion proposal
The program proposal is a brief outline of your program. A proposal can help you clarify what your Champion should do. It will also help you communicate your program to the leadership to get buy-in. This proposal will help you move on to the next step.
3. Secure Leadership Support
The key to fostering workplace culture is your company leaders. Your company leaders are key to fostering a culture of excellence and innovation in the workplace. Leaders must support program champions as they will be spending their work time fulfilling Champion responsibilities.
How to manage your Champion Program
Your Champions should be visible. You can give your Champions an email signature badge or a lanyard. To track progress towards program goals, establish reporting metrics. Encourage Champions to think about how they can reach employees.
Your Champions will be excited about their role in your overall program success, and it is important to capitalise on this momentum.
Passionate employees who are driven to improve the workplace’s health culture and strive to be champions. Employees who are able to make connections and show compassion for their colleagues tend to thrive. They should be approachable, have strong leadership and communication skills, and be looked up by their coworkers. Employees with a strong interest in healthy lifestyles can be great advocates for change.
