Does University of the West of England have an on site gym?

Pros

Great benefits, good focus on staff and student wellbeing, investment in building beautiful buildings (as well as improving the older ones), amazing campus grounds with beautiful trees and flowers, the coffee is great too. With a people centric ethos of a library, cafes, shops, a gym, nursery, post office and a barber's on site, working for UWE Bristol is more like working for a community than working for a business. I am proud to work for UWE Bristol, it is an organisation that is flourishing, achieving great goals and provides fantastic learning opportunities to it's students and staff, take a look at their 'ranking and reputation' internet page for more details.

Cons

It's a large organisation, sometimes communications are a little lost when disseminated via managerial routes. The recent investment in IT infrastructure due to the Covid situation has meant much clearer communication channels on a team, departmental and university wide level.

Advice to Management

Harness this new more digitally enabled way of working.
