Wellbeing Warrior

Big Changes Start with Small Steps

When we’re ready for a change in our lives -- lose weight, exercise more, eat healthier, make a budget, reduce stress -- we want it to happen fast. But change takes time, and new habits take a lot of practice before they become routine.

 

NEW FOR 2024: The Serco Wellbeing program continues to celebrate your wellbeing success and accomplishments with the Wellbeing Warriors program, but we want to recognize and highlight any strides you’ve made in your wellbeing journey.  One winner will be selected each month and highlighted in our Wellbeing Warriors Campaign. 

 

Share Your Healthy Goals and Success: From small goals to large achievements, we want to hear about your wellbeing wins! Did you:  

  • Start training for a race?

  • Drink more water throughout the day?

  • Take a mindful moment at the end of the workday?

 

Beginning January 2024:  Let us know how you or a fellow colleague are being healthy! Share your healthy goals and accomplishments with Serco Wellbeing. More information on how to submit your goals and successes coming soon!

MARCH 2024

Wellbeing Warrior: Sabrina Sanford

Paul was nominated by Deanna Lushmann for his remarkable wellbeing journey. Paul suffered from a serious medical condition in February 2022, and underwent surgery that unfortunately resulted in paralysis from the waist down - and doctors told him he may never be able to walk again. Not only was Paul dealing with his own medical challenges, but his wife was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in February 2023.  Despite all of this, Paul was determined to walk again.  Through physiotherapy, training and the memory of his wife, Paul was able to not only walk again, but he completed a 5K at the Goose Bay Trapline Marathon in October 2023 - and walked the entire race! He was joined by some of his fellow fire fighters - the same fire fighters who built a ramp for Paul when he first came back home from treatment in his wheelchair.

 

Deanna shared in her nomination, “I feel he is really deserving of this award. If there is anybody who is a Wellbeing Warrior, it's Paul!!” Paul's story is truly inspiring, and we are honored to recognize Paul as the January Wellbeing Warrior!

FEBRUARY 2024 WELLBEING WARRIOR

Deidra Brown

Deidra has been focusing on her physical and mental wellbeing this year with the goal to be healthier for herself and better for her family, friends, colleagues, and employees. 

 

Her journey began by taking a look at the habits that contributed to her becoming unhealthy and started making small, reachable goals: 

  • Talk with her doctor 

  • Remove sweets like cookies, candy, and soda from her diet

  • Stop late night snacking

  • Start walking for 20 minutes and eventually increase the time/duration

  • Take “Coffee Break” with colleagues two times per week by getting up and moving with colleagues.

 

Since Deidra started, she has not only lost 15 pounds, but also improved her nutrition, physical activity, and social connections. Despite challenging days, she stays motivated and positive to reach her goals. One tool that has been helpful for her is having a “Healthier Me” background on her phone! 

 

Deidra shared “I am striving to just become a better and healthier me. I don't want to look or be like anyone else but want to be able to feel good in my own body. I am not looking for a certain number on the scale but just looking for that moment when I feel great inside and out. What may be right for one person may not be for me and I have accepted that." 

 

Help us celebrate and recognize Deidra for all her efforts throughout her wellbeing journey!

MARCH 2024 WELLBEING WARRIOR

Sabrina Sanford

Congratulations to Sabrina Sanford for being named the March Wellbeing Warrior!  Sabrina was nominated by fellow Serco employee Ashley Sonnier, who shared how Sabrina has been an inspiration to many around Serco.

 

"I am nominating Sabrina Sanford because she has been a pillar of wellness on the contract for a very long time. She shared her own success with me on losing weight and how exercise helped her to reduce stress and keep her alert at work. From clean eating and working out to career progression and teaching positive mental health habits Sabrina is a true inspiration in how to live healthy and happy."

 

Recently Sabrina has started a lunchtime walking group to encourage colleagues who work remote to get exercise and find community. She has been heard to state that talking while walking is great in helping those who are remote employees feel less alone and that togetherness has become something that many members of the team look forward to every week. Sabrina's wellness journey encompasses all aspects of being healthy including highlighting the Rise to the Challenge methods, teaching others to journal, encouraging drinking water in meetings and helping others to gain the courage to grow in their careers.

 

Sabrina has encouraged healthy living, community and fellowship in everyone around her without asking for anything in return. Her journey has been an inspiration to her teams and everyone around her. Sabrina has continued to inspire people with her journey and encourages everyone around her to eat healthy, work-out and care for themselves.

 

Congratulations and thank you to Sabrina for not only embracing wellness but motivating others to live healthy.
