After the overwhelming success of our participation in the Academic Bicycle Challenge in June – 142,428 kilometres travelled together by a total of 634 registered participants from MLU – we are pleased to announce another exciting cycling campaign: the “Stadtradeln”!
This year, for the first time, MLU is providing a team for which you can register as an individual or as a sub-team. For 21 days, starting on 4 September 2023, the aim is to cover as many everyday journeys as possible by bicycle.
Cycling is excellent for body and mind. It is good for the muscles and lungs, it helps against physical ailments and defects. Cycling is suitable for most people. There are many good reasons to get on a bike. In June, there is one more – MLU is taking part in the Academic Bicycle Challenge again in 2023! Attractive prizes will be awarded at the Long Night of Science on 7 July.
In autumn 2021 we reported on the survey results of the Occupational Health Management (OHM) survey “Working conditions and health at MLU”. How did this proceed now and what does it mean in relation to you personally?
If you struggle frequently with migraines, suffer from an autoimmune disease or another chronic illness or impairment, you may be absent from work due to illness more often than others. Or you may have the same job performance as others, but find it much harder to perform at the same level or work under the same conditions. Or maybe you are not aware that you have a chronic illness or what is considered a “chronic illness”? Perhaps you are worried about what colleagues and superiors might think and whether your health impairment has negative consequences for your work activity.
MLU positions itself as an employer that can and wants to adapt to individual concerns. In this article, we want which services are offered by MLU and how MLU can support you. The article is intended to support you in making an informed decision as to whether you would like to disclose your health impairment to your employer and to show you where suitable contact persons and consulting partners are available.
Is the health of your employees and colleagues important to you? You recognize that healthy and satisfied employees can make working together more effective?
Then take part in our work situation analysis with your team!
n June and July 2021, the employee survey on the topic of “Working conditions and health” took place at MLU. We had announced that we would present the results of this survey in autumn this year. Now the time has come.
During our health theme weeks in June and July this year, various relaxation courses also took place. To give you the opportunity to set up a relaxation time independent of the time and place of the courses, we have recorded the relaxation sessions and posted them on our blog.
The occupational health management at MLU Halle is conducting a survey of all employees in June and July 2021. You can find all details in this article and we hope that we can convince you to take part in the survey. Our aim is to shape your work situation positively so that you can stay healthy for a long time.
