Staff Wellbeing Works
Weymouth College offers a fantastic range of employee benefits, with your wellbeing at the heart of our workplace culture, which is friendly, collaborative and creative.
What our staff say…
‘A very positive step to jolt me out of my normal physical activities and to try new things.’
‘Excellent programme. Feel very lucky to have the support from the College and to work here.’
‘The whole staff team seemed really happy and there was a real positive atmosphere around the college. I got to speak to people from other departments that I wouldn’t normally. There was so much on the activity programme that I would have loved to have done just didn’t get to fit it all in.’
If staff need to talk in confidence about a private issue – financial, health-related or personal – our support staff are there for staff as well as students.
