Welcome to Spring 2021!
Our goal is to create a culture that allows employees to be their best, both on and off the clock. By offering a wide variety of programs through multiple modalities (live-virtual, pre-recorded, podcasts, and blogs), we will be able to meet the diverse needs of UD employees, spouses, retirees, and their families.

What is wellbeing?
Wellbeing starts with simple questions—What can I do today to feel fulfilled and balanced? Are you connected to purpose, people and your community? Do you have a balance between body, mind and spirit? Am I happy?
Wellbeing is unique to you and our goal is to bring awareness to where you are and what you need. Our department offers resources designed to support you in personal development to live your best life. We offer exciting opportunities to participate in throughout the year that support your wellbeing, connect you with your colleagues and the UD community and keep your health in focus.
“I can’t praise your office enough. The changes you have instituted over the past year, the offerings you provide us, and especially now in quarantine, you give me a bright spot and something to look forward to. I don’t always participate, and I don’t always participate FULLY when I do, but it really makes a difference. Feel good about your work!!”
