A strong culture of wellbeing in the workplace leads to greater personal wellness and work performance. The NIRSA Wellbeing Briefing Work Group invites you to use this table below as a guide to help you evaluate whether you are experiencing a culture of wellbeing in your current workplace.
If you answer “yes,” reflect on examples of how this culture of wellbeing is displayed and supported at your place of work. If you answer “no,” consider how you might contribute as an individual to promoting a culture of wellbeing at work.
This resource was developed by the NIRSA Wellbeing Briefing Work Group using the following source materials:
- Gallup’s Employee Engagement Survey: Ask the Right Questions With the Q12® Survey
- A sense of belonging is crucial for employees. How employers can foster connection and social support
- Campus Recreation Essentials: Competencies for Student Employees
