Wellbeing - useful links

A working group of CIfA's Advisory Council was set up to look at resources and opportunities for workplace wellbeing. The working group surveyed our Registered Organisations and talked to colleagues to find out what practices were currently in place. As a result we have formulated this list of useful links for companies and staff to support workplace wellbeing.

This list is not exhaustive so if you are aware of other links we might use, please get in touch at admin@archaeologists.net. Please also get in touch if you would like to share a case study from your organisation.
