Employee Wellbeing Banner

NUI Galway was awarded KeepWell Accreditation at Commitment Level in 2021. Over the lifetime of the University Strategy 2020 – 2025, we plan to elevate our accreditation from Commitment Level to Excellent Level.

The challenge of defining Wellbeing has been recognized, with no one agreed upon definition. In a Workplace setting, it is generally accepted that Wellbeing involves: Physical Wellbeing, Emotional Wellbeing, and Social Wellbeing.  As an Employer, we also contribute to your Financial Wellbeing through our various Benefits.  Each of these components has a dedicated page on this website with further information, initiatives, and supports available.

Once the Wellbeing Committee is formed, details of members will be available here and you are welcome to channel feedback through them or email your suggestions/comments to us.
