School of Technology


The University is committed to providing a healthy working environment and improving the quality of working lives for all staff. In order to achieve this, the University has produced a wellbeing strategy which aims to support the University’s mission and core values of freedom of thought and expression, freedom from discrimination and the recognition that the University’s staff are its greatest asset. 

Through the integration of wellbeing in all work activities and practices, a positive environment can be created that is compatible with promoting staff engagement, performance and achievement.  The School of Technology is supportive of this approach.  

Work already exists in the School and wider University in the following key areas: 

  • Improving working lives through employment policies such as flexible working, absence management and dignity at work. 
  • Creating a safe place to work through health and safety policy and initiatives.
  • Decreasing the interval between treatment and return to work through occupational health referral and advice. 
  • Career development through Personal and Professional Development (PPD). 
  • Human resource initiatives such as widening participation and equality and diversity.
  • Personal support through the Staff Counselling Service. 

Further information on what the School is doing can be found in the HR Overview and Equality and Diversity sections of this webpage.

Additionally, the University Wellbeing website has a wealth of advice and resources on wellbeing, including the following:

The University of Cambridge Festival of Wellbeing is held annually each June and includes a programme of talks and activities to promote positive mental and physical health for all.
