Work at Widener University?
If so, chances are you're probably pretty happy about that.
The university based in Chester has been recognized as one of the most psychologically healthy places to work in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Psychological Association presented Widener with the award at its annual convention in Harrisburg earlier this month.
The association considers employee involvement, work-life balance, employee growth and development, employee recognition and health and safety.
The university in a press release about the recognition cited its "wellness days" during which faculty, staff and students work collectively on stress management, well-being and work-life/home-life balance. Faculty and staff, the university said, have free access to the school's gym and recreational activities. Many employees also work flexible schedules and are offered "personal development activities" including the option of taking classes and earning a college degree tuition free, the university said.
"This award is particularly gratifying because Widener strives to be an employer of first choice," James T. Harris III, president of the 6,000-student university, said in a statement. "We not only provide opportunities for employees to improve themselves physically, mentally and emotionally, we also empower them to provide members of the communities we serve with similar opportunities through community service and civic engagement."
