Pavelka Pioneers is our programme that supports people within organisations and communities to lead the well-being drive by themselves.
We provide the support, the guidance – and most of all, the culture of health and well-being through the entire organisation.
We create events for Pioneers and we celebrate them – and it’s the Pioneers themselves that then get busy bringing well-being to life!
Pioneers are empowered to make well-being happen how they see it, from small meetings, groups and the like, to larger campaigns.
The 2022 El Camino project is a fantastic example and great story.
You can read about the experience on this post from Esther Roure Vila on LinkedIn.
“How do we make the hike meaningful and impactful? Sadly, we all have been affected by cancer, losing family and friends to this awful disease. The Camino 2022 is a way to honor them, remember them, and collect funds to fight against cancer so that others can have a chance to live. Then a thought struck us. Why stop at just three of us: The Three Amigas? So we thought about inviting the whole office. No! That’s not enough! Let’s go bigger and invite everyone in Cisco Europe. But why stop there? Let’s invite the whole world!”
Esther also says: “To follow the adventure follow #Camino2022 #WeAreCisco. Thanks to 40+ volunteers and Cisco’s benefits, this adventure was possible through the Cisco Pavelka health and well-being program, the brightfunds fundraising platform, and the Cisco volunteer days. Plus, all the collaboration technology we use to connect around the world.”
Wishing you safe and happy trails to everyone going on the journey!
