Health and Wellness

Massey is committed to helping staff keep healthy and well.

Wellness@Massey takes a holistic view of health, as detailed in the six dimensions detailed below:

Mauriora (cultural identity)

Massey has committed to socially and culturally responsible campuses as detailed in The Road to 2025. An aspect of cultural identity is work discipline. Massey supports access to professional associations within work disciplines by paying professional fees where membership of a professional body is required for the role (as detailed in Massey’s Employment Agreements).  The cultural identity dimension will be developed further over time. 

Waiora (physical environment) 

Massey campuses and buildings are a special part of our rich workplace. Many systems such as health and safety exist to protect the environment and Vice-Chancellor has commenced a project on sustainability as part of environmental responsibility.

Toiora (healthy lifestyle)

Existing health and wellness services cover:

Te Oranga (participation in society)

Keeping healthy also means being connected and staff are encouraged to participate in the University community by:

  • Participation in decision making
  • Participating in your business unit's operations
  • Personal academic development
  • Professional development in the knowledge society
  • Participation in health and safety.

This dimension will be further developed over time.

Nga Manukura (community leadership)

This is about the University wellness project which is a work in progress.

Te Mana Whakahaere (autonomy)

This is about how much you and your community participate in the wellness services offered, and the opportunities detailed above. Only you can take control of your own health. It’s your move next!
