Did you know that the process of learning has been proven to have positive effects on mental wellbeing?

The five steps to mental wellbeing are well-established, and accepted and widely promoted by health authorities such as NHS England and the Health Service Executive in the Republic of Ireland. One of the steps talks about how learning can improve mental wellbeing by:

  • boosting self-confidence and raising self-esteem
  • helping to build a sense of purpose
  • helping to connect with others

All of our working lives have changed in some way - whether that's our place of work, the type of work we are doing, or stopping work altogether after being placed on furlough, and therefore helping to keep colleagues safe, and in paid employment.

It's important to note that the current crisis around Coronavirus (Covid-19) is just that - current. It will end. And when it ends, we need to be able to approach our work with the necessary knowledge to perform our roles with competence and compliance. And, perhaps, having picked up some new skills along the way.

The UK & Ireland Learning and Development team has curated its huge library of e-learning into a three-phase programme that will support us on that journey.

ABC: building for a new normal provides timely resources to:

  1. Accelerate your learning: a playlist of essential learning, such as Responsible Business Conduct and managing safely
  2. Build for change: resources to guide us through the remobilisation phase, including Office 365 and Unleash, while maintaining a focus on wellbeing
  3. Commit to improve: elements around management skills and further compliance measures

In the coming weeks, we will look for your input on the learning that you will find most useful in the Build and Commit playlists.

We all have a role to play in getting ready for the new normal, and we must all be match-fit to face the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead.

Take the time to engage with learning by visiting Ingenium now.

Thank you for saluting our Forces

Last week was Armed Forces Week (22 to 28 June 2020); a celebration of the Armed Forces across the region who keep us safe, and an opportunity for Sodexo to celebrate our own teams who support the military community every day.


Salute our Forces

Each year, Armed Forces Week (22 to 28 June 2020) provides Sodexo with the opportunity to commemorate the Armed Forces across the region, and gives us a chance to celebrate our own Hidden Heroes who are helping the military in a number of different ways.

With the launch of rise with Sodexo, Sodexo Ambassador Matt Dawson takes the opportunity in his last Hidden Heroes video message to thank just some of your colleagues who are already helping our clients to safely reopen their doors.

Hidden Heroes

You are helping us to rise

Last week we saw the launch of rise with Sodexo, our new programme aimed at helping our clients prepare to reopen or be reconfigured to meet the requirements of their new normal. We know that this means the hard work continues for many of you, and for some this work is already underway, so this week we are celebrating our Hidden Heroes who are helping our clients rise with confidence.

This week, you have all been spreading the joy of kindess in celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week (18 to 24 May 2020) and IDAHOBIT (17 May 2020), supporting each other, friends, family and the communities where we operate. This week Matt thanks just a few of our Hidden Heroes truly paying it forward.
