Identifying Key Players

Why it's Important to Have Key Players

Well-Being in the workplace starts with making sure departments have identified Key Players who can help lead the way in bringing well-being resources to their workforce. Key Players are defined as well-being ambassadors that make up the four city employers within the City and County of San Francisco. These include: CCSF, CCD, CRT and USD.  

By having Key Players identified for each department, the San Francisco Health Service System's Well-Being Team is able to:

  • Consult directly with departments to understand the needs of their employees
  • Develop a customized approach to well-being that is more suited for each department's environment, culture, and workforce
  • Provide support in developing a well-being strategy that is aligned with the department's priorities

Did You Know?

Ideally, at least one person from leadership is identified to be a Department Lead and at least one employee is identified to be a Champion.  Larger departments should consider multiple Champions to represent different locations/divisions, aiming for 1 champion for every 200 employees.
