Leiden University endeavors to create a positive working environment for all of its staff; an environment in which staff development and enjoyment are at the forefront and where work pressure among staff is manageable. To establish an indication of the university’s present results in this regard, all members of staff were asked to complete a survey in May 2021.
The results of the survey show that we face a considerable challenge. Social safety and work pressure are points of concern and must improve. The university is therefore intensifying its policy aimed at creating a safer environment and has recently improved its social safety policy framework. The university is also channeling its efforts into reducing work pressure among its staff.
