The Work Well Feel Well Project - background
A working group has been established to foster a better quality of working life at CERN and, in particular, to identify, remedy and prevent stress in the workplace. This multidisciplinary working group comprises people from the Human Resources (HR) department, the Health, Safety and Environmental protection (HSE) unit and the Staff Association, as well as the Ombud. Part of their work has been to analyse the stress prevention measures taken by other organisations and firms across Europe.
