Be Well @ UL

1.  Be Well @ UL - Overview

The University of Limerick Human Resources Division has an active role to play in the health and well-being of UL employees.  During the year there is an active calendar of events and initiatives that are run for the benefit of all UL employees, covering health and physical exercise, nutrition and wellbeing, personal finance, personal development, stress management among others.  The University of Limerick is committed to maintaining and improving the well-being of all staff at work and the HR Division works to ensure that there is a programme of events each year to meet that goal.  In order to continue to do this, it is important that the Division is in tune with employee needs in the area of well-being at work, that factors affecting people’s well-being are clearly identified and managed effectively in order to maintain a positive and thriving working environment.
