“Doing great work in a great place to work“
Well-being is tricky to define – but in my experience you know it when you feel it, or when you see it in other people. I am very keen to do what I can to make working for the University of Cambridge as good for all our well-beings as possible, not least because I think that people who feel good about coming to work are much more likely to do great work, and working as part of a group of great colleagues has often been a source or support of well-being for me.
