Coco, Our True Blue HERO of the Year!July 01, 2019
At Blue Harbor Senior Living, our True Blue team is made up of HEROs: helpful, effective, reliable, and optimistic! We wrote about the launch of our 2018 HEROES campaign, where we kicked things off by helping other organizations also helping seniors. Hop on over to this kickoff blog here!
As our HERO Program has grown and evolved, we’ve loved hearing stories about all the touching and generous work on the behalf of our staff. We just love our team!
Each month, our communities nominate a Blue Harbor HERO of the Month. Our Blue Harbor HEROs receive bonuses, and we love to honor all the amazing employees in our communities.
Below are the attributes and definitions of a True Blue HERO:
H: HELPFUL (I act with other in mind)
E: EFFECTIVE (I am part of the solution)
R: RELIABLE (I happily go the extra mile)
O: OPTIMISTIC (I am positive and inspire those around me)
Honoring a Special HERO
When one of our employees is named a True Blue HERO, it’s a true honor. In 2018, we were so happy to honor a very special HERO: Our 2018 HERO of the Year! Earlier this year, we named Coco of The Gardens Senior Living our 2018 HERO of the Year.
Coco, a Med Tech from The Gardens, was honored on Wednesday, April 10th in Portland, OR as our 2018 Blue Harbor HERO of the Year. She was nominated in September of 2018 for her continuous commitment and dedication to her role and her community. She was recognized by her peers, management, and residents for her hard work. She does everything with pure joy!
Coco and her mom flew out to Portland, OR on April 9th and spent the day touring all around the city—including a trip out to the beautiful Multnomah Falls. Her trip was capped off with the awards banquet Wednesday evening where she was recognized and honored as our Blue Harbor HERO of the Year.
When Coco received her award, she said, “Don’t be like me; be better than me.” What incredibly humble and profound words! Coco is 100% True Blue!
Watch this incredibly touching video about Coco, and learn about all the wonderful things her coworkers had to say about her! What a gift to us all.
