Better Relationships

Fostering communications and social connections allows better understanding and cooperation between members of your team.

Coaching and Mentoring

Mentoring is a great way to strengthen your work relationships and create new ones. Our mentoring page has advice and guidance on how to start, either as someone seeking a mentor, or as a mentor looking to offer their services.


Interested in finding new opportunities for socialising within the university? GCU is home to a variety of societies, many of them open to staff and students alike.

Societies are a great way to meet new friends and get involved in many other areas - and if you can't find what you're looking for, you're welcome to start your own. To find out more, check out our Social Activities  page.

Supporting Families

An employee who is stressed out over conflicting work/family demands won't perform as well as they could. Likewise, someone who feels supported in their personal life will have extra energy, time and goodwill to put towards their work.

Your manager is there to offer support in order to help you achieve a healthy work/life balance. Read our section on Staff Lifestyle in order to get some ideas of the support available to you.

Resolving Problems

If problems arise, the Resolving Problems section of the intranet offer advice and support for dealing with difficulties in a fair and compassionate manner, allowing them to be worked out in ways that minimise ill-feeling.

Volunteering Experience

Volunteering can be a fun and fulfilling way to get involved with your local community, and GCU can help you participate. Visit our volunteering pages for more info.
