Quality of life at work

The University of Montpellier offers counselling and listening spaces to reflect on one's career, to prepare a professional project or to talk about difficulties at work. Meetings and conferences are organized to question work. To relax, workshops (meditation, sophrology, massage) are regularly offered in the workplace.

Organization of support systems for personnel

In order to deal with difficulties in the workplace, the UM has developed mechanisms to ensure that psycho-social risks are addressed and monitored on a long-term basis. The objective of these measures is to meet collective and individual needs in terms of prevention of psychosocial risks, by promoting synergy between the various actors concerned in the institution.
