Well-being

This page gives you as an employee an overview of various initiatives to promote your physical and mental well-being. Besides this information, keep an eye on the employee portal for up-to-date offers focused on well-being.

EMPLOYEE WELL-BEING RESEARCH

Around one third of the UT employees will have received an invitation on November 4th  for the third measurement of the well-being survey. Invitations have been sent from the program Qualtrics. Filling out the survey will take about 10-15 minutes of your time. Your participation gives us a good idea of how our UT well-being is doing and where necessary concrete improvements can be made.

If you have any questions or comments, or if you have suggestions for the UT regarding the theme of well-being, you are welcome to send them to wellbeing-hr@utwente.nl.

HEALTHY (HOME) WORKPLACE

Having a healthy (home) workplace is of great importance in order to be able to work as sustainably as possible. It therefore is important that your home workplace meets a number of conditions.

Do the CANS-check and ensure you have the right facilities for a healthy home workplace.

Asses your home workplace

On the home workplace page you will find more information about the possibilities for ordering home workplace supplies and ICT workplace support. But working from home is more than just setting up the right facilities and having the right working-position. Think for example about taking breaks regularly, drawing up a fixed timetable or see if a meeting can also be held in 50 minutes, so that you can take a short break in between. 

You can also contact one of our physiotherapists for an online consultation should you develop physical complaints or for advice to prevent complaints.

YEARLY WELL-BEING STUDY

As the current circumstances are unique and we cannot yet predict how things will be in three months, three different measurement periods (Spring, Summer and late Autumn) were deliberately chosen in the research design. This means that employees are divided into three representative groups and that you as an employee are only invited to participate once per year. As a result, we as a university can receive input at three different times throughout the year without putting the employees under additional pressure. Everyone will receive a personal invitation to participate in one of the partial measurements. The most recent report is about the results of sub-study 2 (July-August 2021). The study design was exactly the same as sub-study 1 (April-May 2021).

The most recents reports are available below. On the HR webpage you can also find previous employee well-being reports. A final report for 2021 will follow the last measurement at the end of the year.
