Congratulations to Helen Milford, Vice President of Retail in the South, who has been selected to join the President’s Global Council of Women Leaders (PGCWL).
Helen Milford

The PGCWL was formed in 2009 by Mike Duke, former Walmart CEO, and is comprised of senior women leaders across Walmart who are trusted advisors to our leadership team. They are also catalysts for change and champions for women across the globe.

Helen was one of six to be asked to join the PGCWL – who were selected for exhibiting strong leadership, high performance standards and for being cultural ambassadors. They also serve as role models to women both inside and outside of Walmart.

Helen said: “It’s a real honour to be selected to join the PGCWL. Developing women leaders is such an important initiative for Asda and Walmart and this is a real opportunity to lift others to success and have even more of an impact on careers and opportunities of women both inside and outside of our company.”

Congratulations Helen!

Being active is a great way to help you lose weight, but it can also help you to get fitter and feel better about yourself.

This week we’re delighted to introduce our willing case studies as we follow them on their journey to a fitter and healthier 2015. The case studies have been split into three groups:

  • Weight loss – Asda colleagues who want to lose weight
  • Challenge – colleagues who have decided to take on a new challenge this year including participating in the Run for All 10k’s
  • Life events – we will follow a new mum as she embarks on her journey to lose weight, a new dad who wants to get fitter to be able to keep up with his daughter and a colleague who gets married in April and wants to look his best for the big day.

We hope you enjoy following their journey and feel inspired to get active, we wish them well and look forward to hearing how they are getting on over the coming weeks!
