WPA is an abbreviation for Workplace Assessment. In the WPA process, we evaluate the working environment, engage in dialogue about the results of the survey, prioritise initiatives in an action plan and regularly follow up on the plan.
A WPA is an important tool that allows us to work with our physical and psychological workplace environment systematically and with focus on prevention. Employees and managers at AU should be able to enjoy a healthy, positive work environment that is conducive to well-being and job satisfaction. A good work environment is a prerequisite for our ability to perform the university’s core tasks as well as to well as attract and retain qualified talented employees.
The WPA process has several phases:
It is easy for you as a user. Access all of the resources and services that are relevant to your unit with a single login. Your WPA reports, interim measurements and action plans are all in one place.
Responsibility for the work environment is shared between AU managers and employees. For this reason, it’s important that we together to define the challenges and identify the resources needed to tackle them. The WPA process involves everyone, and by coordinating our efforts, we make sure we’re all rowing in the same direction.
