Supporting Wellbeing

Staff wellbeing is how an organisation enables and supports its people to improve and sustain their health. Wellbeing is more than preventing sickness absence. It is about a holistic approach that can include physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, social health and even financial health. Wellbeing can also include the organisation of work, the balance between work and home, and personal development. The manager has a critical role to play in supporting staff health and wellbeing.

It is part of the role of every manager at the University to contribute to creating a supportive working environment that promotes employee health and wellbeing. Managers are uniquely placed to promote wellbeing and create a healthy, transparent team culture in which people feel able to discuss sensitive issues or ask for help when they need it.
