Quote from Yale College Corporate Health Assessors’ Report 2012:
“The overall culture was open, transparent and supportive; welfare and wellbeing were firmly embedded in the strategy, the policies and the day-to-day working of the College, and there was a clear commitment from the Governors, the Principal, the Senior Management Team and all staff to health and wellbeing. It is important to note that it was obvious from the outset that senior managers and the governors consider the welfare of staff to be a strategic issue.”
