We care about the mental wellbeing of all of our people at Queen's and understand that everyone is facing increasing pressures in their lives both inside and outside of work.
As part of the commitments set out in our People and Culture Strategy, People First, we are dedicated to putting our people at the centre of everything we do at Queen’s.
One of the primary aims of the People & Culture Strategy, People First, was for Queen’s to become a true listening organisation. We’ve been making a real effort to find out what our people have to say about their experience working at the University.
As part of the commitments set out in Our People & Culture Strategy, People First, we must ensure that Queen’s University is an inclusive, supportive and caring place to work.
Our People & Culture Strategy, People First, recognises that our people are our greatest asset and are key to delivering world class research and high-quality student experience.
Our new People First Strategy was launched at an All Staff Event on 27 March 2018. The Strategy aimed to support the strategic priorities of Queen’s Corporate Plan by putting our people at the centre of everything we do.
As we continue the implementation of our People & Culture Strategy, People First, another important milestone occurs on 14 January 2019 when we launch the new HR Service Centre, the HR Hub.
