Employee Wellness and Support

Our daily lives have changed significantly. It is normal to feel overwhelmed with the current circumstances and Queen’s Human Resources is ready to support our employees and promote good health and wellness during uncertain times. We are dedicated to providing resources that will help us transition how we work, and ways to keep us connected and mutually supportive.

We have developed a series of short webinars to help employees deal with the challenges of working in our current environment. These offerings are found in our Learning Catalogue and we are working to make each session recording available to all staff and faculty. Visit the Learning & Development web page to learn more about how we can help you.

Requests for wellness resources or ideas for future topics can be sent to:  hrodl@queensu.ca.

Queen's Helps

Although campus is closed to the majority of faculty, staff, and students, the Queen’s community is working together to confront the challenges posed by COVID-19. The Queen’s Gazette continues to report these positive stories.

The Campus Wellness Project encourages and supports a culture of well-being for everyone at Queen’s, and continues to do so through their “Digital Campus – WORK” site. Visit the site for links to information, services, support and strategies to support the holistic well-being of staff.
