Wellbeing in the DSE
The Staff Survey plays a key role in the development of our Directorate and Wellbeing was identified as one of the key areas in the DSE Staff Survey Action plan.
Throughout the DSE staff survey results, a number of comments highlighted that staff felt their overall wellbeing could be improved and this would help them to feel valued in the workplace. Comments also indicated there needs to be better access to wellbeing initiatives and activities.
To help address this the DSE established a group of Wellbeing Champions to focus on developing and promoting wellbeing activities to staff within the Directorate.
The aim of the network is to improve wellbeing awareness, cascade wellbeing advice and event information, and help the DSE to develop future initiatives that will create healthier, more motivated and more productive employees.
