Meet Your Employee Wellness Champions

San Diego County has 21 Employee Wellness Champions who are both inspirational and great cheerleaders! The champions support the Employee Wellness Program by helping to plan, promote and organize wellness activities at their work locations.

These champions work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure the program, which is committed to the health and well-being of employees, is a success.

“They are one of the backbones of the Employee Wellness Program,” said Employee Wellness Coordinator William Erese. “They are generous in spirit and go above and beyond through volunteering their time to help make our Employee Wellness Program successful.”

The impressive growth of the Employee Wellness Program is representative of the champions’ hard work. They push for program expansion to accommodate interest from employees at numerous worksites and help make wellness a part of our daily County culture.

You may have seen the champions’ spirited outreach in your department’s newsletters, an email about the farmers market, a personal invitation to participate in one of the numerous wellness challenges, onsite fitness classes, lunch-and-learn sessions or behavioral health programs that the Employee Wellness Program offers.

A healthy thanks to all of our Employee Wellness Champions. You get our adrenaline pumping for wellness! Read more about them here.
