Who are "Champs!"?
"Champs!" are people who thrive on being involved in making the workplace a healthier, happier place to be. "Champs!" are enthusiastic about health and wellness and want to be a part of the new worksite wellness group being created by OEBB. OEBB’s goal is to have a "Champs!" participant representing every school, education service district and community college in Oregon.
What will I need to do if I become a "Champs!" member?
This group will come together (in person or via teleconference participation) on a monthly basis to begin with to share great ideas for wellness activities, share success stories and identify various resources available to assist in implementing or maintaining wellness programs and activities. We anticipate it will entail a commitment of about two hours per month in the beginning to attend and participate in the monthly meeting and whatever time you can spend transferring the new ideas and knowledge to your coworkers and peers. Once the initial implementation and planning phase is over, meetings of the group will probably take place on a quarterly basis, with news and new information being shared by OEBB via emails and/or newsletters in the interim. Since we are in the planning stages, one of the first tasks will be to identify how we can make this group as successful as possible. How we can help you take the messages to your coworkers and peers. How we can help connect you with resources that are out there to support wellness at your worksite. We look forward to hearing from you and scheduling our first meeting to get to know what your needs are, your wishes are and what you are doing right now.
This sounds like me, what do I need to do now?
If you want to become part of the OEBB "Champs!" group, e-mail your name and contact information to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 888-469-6322 by Friday, December 9, 2011. It will be helpful if you include the best meeting times for you as well, so we can schedule the first meeting in early January 2012.
We look forward to hearing from you and working with you on this new endeavor.
