“To improve the physical and mental wellbeing of staff, by empowering and supporting colleagues to flourish in their working environment”
As we navigate the challenging times we face with Covid-19, the University is working hard to protect you as employees, to keep you to up-to-date and informed as the situation changes. We realise personal circumstances can change and this can be a source of stress. Please keep your line manager informed of any change to your needs. Wellbeing is a priority and we are working hard to support you during this time.
You are invited to a series of Wellbeing Cafés being hosted on Microsoft Teams throughout the Autumn Term. These sessions are an opportunity for people to come together to share and network with colleagues across the University who are interested in wellbeing and the opportunity to contribute to this conversation. Members of the Wellbeing Action Group will be present to hear your thoughts and ideas, so that these can be given due consideration.
Working on Campus during Covid-19
When you are invited to start working on campus we hope that you will be looking forward to your return. We recognise however that some of you may have some concerns. If this applies to you, you should raise these directly with your Line Manager (or Supervisor). To support this discussion we have developed the Covid-19 Return to Campus Discussion Form for Managers and Supervisors to record these conversations.
Advice on supporting a return to campus is available from Wellbeing Services and HR. In addition an Occupational Health Return to Work assessment is available to assist Managers and Supervisors. To access this the OH Referral for Covid-19 Assessment Form should be completed by the referrer.
