Supporting the well-being of our team members is always important, and has rose to the forefront throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that’s impacting our universities, our nation and the world. It’s a stressful time for all of us, and it’s more important than ever to stop, take a deep breath and focus on our own well-being.
With that in mind, the University of North Texas System Human Resources team has the resources and programs to help you navigate these challenging times.
Our well-being initiative was created to assist faculty and staff from UNT, UNT Health Science Center, UNT Dallas and UNT System Administration live their best lives. We believe the health and wellness of our employees is critical to their success – both personally and professionally. We provide resources and learning opportunities to team members across the UNT System in three categories:
Maintaining good physical well-being is more than just going for a run, taking a spin class or walking for a half-hour, getting active can encompass meeting your nutritional goals, losing weight, quitting smoking or even attending annual doctor’s visits.
Maintaining good interpersonal wellness is a key aspect to overall well-being. And by implementing healthy interpersonal skills, you can reduce stress levels, help to resolve conflicts and improve communication among your colleagues, peers and family.
Financial well-being is an aspect of employee wellness that is often overlooked. But it’s essential that you feel healthy financially, just as you should feel healthy physically and emotionally.
During this unique time, we are ramping up our efforts to provide free virtual workshops each week to support employees – particularly in interpersonal and financial well-being. Explore available webinars in our Events Calendar.
