Human Resources

Working at QMUL menu


Connecting with others includes talking and listening to others around you, and not necessarily those you know! Studies have shown that feeling closer to and valued by others is a fundamental human need.

Having the opportunity to be supported, as well as supporting others, can have a positive impact on your wellbeing. You have more opportunity to share positive experiences and feel more understood.
