Staff Wellbeing

Supporting Your Wellbeing In UCC

UCC takes a holistic approach to the wellbeing needs of staff and has a strong culture and tradition of excellence in Workplace Wellbeing.

In 2018, we were the first university to be awarded IBECs KeepWell Mark, which reflects UCC's dedication to the health and wellbeing of its staff. 

UCC’s strategic plan 2017-2022 states that recognising and affirming the promotion of staff health & wellbeing will be integral to demonstrating UCC’s core values. UCC is committed to the health, prosperity and wellbeing of our colleagues and helps to ensure that the principles of health and wellbeing extend beyond the workplace and into the lives of our families and communities.  

UCC offers a comprehensive and varied programme of wellbeing related supports to all colleagues including networking cafes, lunchtime activities and 60-minute resilience workshops in addition to the EAP service offered by Spectrum Life.
