November 7th, 2018

Next week is Week of Wellbeing – and there are a variety of activities and events taking place across our UK campuses.

Wellbeing is an important part of working life. Our Week of Wellbeing (12-16 November 2018) is intended to support a long-term focus on wellbeing at the University of Nottingham, and includes a number of activities and events to help improve awareness and showcase different areas of employee wellbeing.

The Week of Wellbeing programme features more than 140 activities and events open to all UoN staff throughout the week, with a focus on five themes:

  • Healthy mental wellbeing
  • Healthy work experience
  • Social wellbeing
  • Health lifestyle
  • Healthy environment

Included are keynote speeches from speakers such as HSBC (talking about financial wellbeing), Janet Lord, Professor of Immune Cell Biology, University of Birmingham (discussing working towards a healthy old age), Smokefree Nottingham (talking about smoking), and many speakers from the University of Nottingham including Dr Holly Blake, Associate Professor, Health Sciences (Promoting Health at Work) and Dr Fiona McCullough, School of Biosciences (discussing Food as Fuel).

There’s also a comprehensive listing of fitness-related events from UoN sport. In addition, tours of the new Cripps Health Centre will take place on Thursday 15 November, presented by centre manager Daniel Hammersley.

If you’re a staff member, please do take a look at our events listing: there’s still time to sign up to many events, with others offered on a drop-in basis.

If you’re a manager, please help support this programme by forwarding it to your team members.
