Note: Your application will be reviewed by your supervisor and human resources representative (HR rep) to ensure that this is something that fits well with your current workload and capacity. Serving as a Wellness Ambassador will require about 30-minutes of time per month, but could be up to two hours per month on occasion if you are organizing a special wellness program or event for your work area.

Roles and Responsibilities:

What if My Department Already has a Wellness Ambassador?

In some cases it makes sense to have more than one Wellness Ambassador—for example, if your department is split up into sub-units or different buildings. UI Wellness will visit with you, other Wellness Ambassadors from the department, and the local HR rep to determine whether this is a good idea.
