  • Health, work, wellbeing

The University has a strong commitment to employee health and wellbeing. We recognise that a good working environment can positively impact on the health and happiness of our staff and aim to provide a workplace that embraces inclusivity and flexibility and provides everyone with the opportunity to manage their time and their commitments in the best way that they can.

Wellbeing is commonly defined as the state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. Our wellbeing is influenced by many things including how we feel and function in our everyday lives. Looking after your own wellbeing is key to feeling good and functioning well.

These pages will offer information and resources to fully support employee wellbeing in day to day life.
