WPA 2022 at Natural Sciences

The ambition for the work environment at Aarhus University is for all employees to work in a healthy and good environment that creates well-being and job satisfaction.

Every third year, workplace assessments (WPAs) are performed at the university where focus is on both the physical and psychological work environment at your workplace. The next WPA survey will take place in spring 2022.
