2022 has been the year we have really started to recognise the importance of the health and wellbeing of our team members and the need to ensure we have a focus on this as we grow and evolve.

Sedulo fully recognises that, for our people to be able to bring the best version of themselves to work and to generate great work for our clients, we need to provide the right support and tools to make this happen.

Over the last six months, we have taken big steps in the right direction – firstly launching Sedulo Wellbeing (with a focus on physical, financial, mental and social wellbeing) which provides varied activities for our team members to get involved – ranging from the more sedate but educational presentations through to gruelling 10km runs or taking part in 5- a-side football for those that want to get the blood pumping!


We have also run awareness sessions around the extensive list of services that our health provider, Medicash offers our team members and we have done really meaningful work to understand how our people are feeling about life at Sedulo – via our Annual Engagement Survey (which was so insightful we are repeating it again in August!) as well as launching a weekly “Happiness Survey” to gauge how the Sedulo team is feeling more regularly throughout the year.


Giving everyone at Sedulo a voice is paramount to the success of the business; ensuring everyone feels listened to and that they are empowered to make suggestions that will be taken seriously – ultimately our aim is to have a happy, engaged and productive workforce that are invested in being part of the journey that Sedulo is on, and we are obsessed with us all getting there together.


There has been a noticeable reduction in our employee turnover rate since we started to listen, action and deliver on initiatives that demonstrate consideration and care for our people and also demonstrates that we are genuinely invested in everyone’s future development within the business – this is a brilliant motivator in our quest for Sedulo to become the “world class” organisation of the future that we know it can be!
