UCC wins Ibec KeepWell Award
This award recognises UCC’s commitment to prioritising staff health and wellbeing and it’s determined efforts to embed and improve workplace wellness within the University.
We are truly honoured to have received this award after being shortlisted under 3 categories of awards: Best in Class for Nutrition, Best in Class for Leadership and Best in Class for Physical Activity
Much of our wellness success can be attributed to the harnessing of our internal expertise from staff members wanting to give back. This award embodies the strong sense of community spirit and generosity amongst our staff. It recognises those who selflessly give their time in imparting their wellness skills and expertise to their colleagues, not only in physical activity but right across the wellbeing spectrum. We would therefore like to thank all staff, too many to mention individually, who helped make this award happen! A special thank you as well to the Mardyke Arena for their continued engagement and support with Staff Wellbeing physical activity initiatives.
Digital Badge Training
This year also sees the introduction of a new Digital Badge offering SPEAK. These programmes are immensely popular & we recommend staff check in on availablity for The Successful Team Leader & The Effective Employee on My Training @ ess.ucc.ie. Places on SPEAK & First Steps Into Management are by application only & we do hope to run each programme again in Term 2.
