Working environment

APV 2012-2015 (workplace evaluation)

At Aalborg University (AAU), the well-being of employees are prioritised, which is why e.g. the university strategy is focusing on the working environment. The physical, psychical and safety related working environment help to define the well-being of the employees and so a continuous APV process from 2012-2015 will be conducted which will include a joint workplace evaluation (APV) and well-being study for the entire university.
