The WPA is coming up: Follow the process

Preparations for the upcoming workplace assessment (WPA) are in full swing around the university. And also at Health, where the local website, advisory group and timetable for the process are now ready.


At the beginning of the new year, we will again evaluate the working environment at AU. This time, employees must evaluate both the psychological and physical work environment in the same questionnaire during the period from 25 February to 13 March 2019.

The survey itself consists of the same questionnaire for the whole university. Each faculty has incorporated its own faculty-specific questions as part of the workplace assessment questionnaire. At Health the themes for the questions are cultural differences, language barriers and professional development. The themes have been proposed by the advisory group and approved by FAMU and FSU.

Experienced people closely monitoring the process

Together with the other people in the WPA advisory group, she is ready to provide support throughout the process and has the task of coordinating and communicating the faculty’s process, so that employees, managers, the occupational health and safety organisation, the liaison committee organisation and AU HR are involved in the process in the best possible way.
