Let Your Boss Know CCWS is Essential

We know the advantages CCWS designation offers to members and their organizations, and we want you to be able to communicate them effectively. After all, communication is an essential part of program delivery. And as a certified wellness and well-being specialist, you’ll be consistently defining your ideas with confidence. Let your boss know the benefits of getting certified and how it strengthens your organization from the bottom up.

Make it Personal

What HR challenges does your organization face?

Highlight the issues pertinent to your organization and give examples of how CCWS can address each one of them.


‘We can attract top talent if candidates know we have a wellness program in place dedicated to their personal career development.’
‘Our organization can make significant health insurance savings by implementing wellness programs that teach how to manage chronic illness.’

Yes, it’s About the Money

Tell your supervisor you can save them money by taking the course and getting certified. Best of all, the cost of the course is redeemable as tax credits.

Explain the significant return on investment (ROI) and value on investment (VOI) wellness programs generate. They save money by preventing costly expenditure. They produce cash flow by boosting productivity and performance.

Be the Best

Your education is a valuable commodity. Let your boss know you want to develop your career and gain additional qualifications. If you demonstrate long-term commitment to your profession, you’ll no doubt receive the support of your employer.

The HR industry is rapidly evolving, and unless you’re plugged into the network defining the new parameters, you and your organization, will always be one step behind. This change isn’t reversible, and the longer it’s ignored, the more detrimental to successful business it will be.

Unless you’re up on the latest legislation and compliancy practices, your employer could face stiff financial penalties and fines. Staying up-to-date with these guidelines is a legal requirement. Especially in today’s volatile political climate.

Reach out and Connect

It’s who you know, and what you know. With a global following of over 2.1 million industry professionals, the CCWS network is unparalleled in its human resource capacity. Being a part of that network opens up pathways to career development and financial opportunities, that would otherwise remain hidden.

Join forces with the influencers leading your profession. Gain invaluable insight into their methods and practices, and learn how they’re helping established corporations stay ahead of the competition. The biggest names in business are literally one email away. Use their knowledge to further your own organization’s ambitions.

Lead the Team

The benefits of CCWS certification are delivered through you to every other employee in your organization. Make sure your employer understands CCWS certification is the first step on a path to long-term success.

Not only will you be delivering an invaluable service to your organization and its employees, you’ll also be sharing the knowledge you gain with your immediate team. Think big picture. Explain clearly how the HR department can supercharge your workforce with personalized incentives, and provide a tailored wellness program that effectively fine-tunes performance.
