people supporting each other arm in arm

Join our community of Champions

We need you in our corner to strengthen Stanford’s culture of care. As a Champion, you’ll advocate for healthy behavior and self-care within your department or workgroup and positively impact your colleagues’ well-being.

Sign up to become a Champion by completing a brief Qualtrics form. You can also sign up on the BeWell platform by selecting the BeWell Champions program page. After signing up, check your email for a welcome message with a voucher code to redeem your points.

You’ll see your 250 BeWell incentive points on the Rewards page in the platform after you redeem your points using the voucher code.

Current Champions should sign-up each program year to earn incentive points.

Contribute to a culture of wellness

BeWell Champions are university employees who value wellness and want to support a culture of care in their workgroup. There are no set ways that you have to accomplish this goal. We recognize that the amount of time and energy spent on the Champion role will differ across Champions and at different times of the year.

All Champions will receive two wellness emails each month with Champion-specific perks, wellness tips, and resources available to all university employees. While there are no “must do” actions as a Champion, we hope Champions share these tips and resources with interested colleagues.

In addition to the 250 points Champions receive for signing up, Champions also have access to exclusive perks, wellness resources, and opportunities to earn extra points throughout the year. BeWell Champions can apply for wellness grants for a team wellness activity during two application cycles each year. 

Here are some more ideas on how you can make a difference as a BeWell Champion:

  • Attend the Champion-specific trainings (or better yet, present in a training)!  Champions learn more about these opportunities after signing up.
  • Participate in a Champion focus group to help enhance our Champion program.
  • Bring a Healthy Living for Teams class to your workgroup.
  • Work with your colleagues to develop your own wellness activities to try and share your activities with fellow Champions.
  • View our Champion resources and Champion-generated list of wellness activities on Google Drive. (Champions will receive access after signing up.)
  • Read and share our monthly wellness tips.
  • Encourage colleagues to also become Champions.

Connect with the Champions community

Connect with the Champions community, and find timely notices of Champion-specific and university-wide wellness opportunities on our Champions Slack channel. You can also share your own posts about wellness and engage in our daily gratitude practice through this channel. The Champions Slack channel allows you to feel more connected to a community of supportive colleagues who similarly value a work environment where all employees feel appreciated and have a sense of wellness and belonging.
