Employee Well-Being

As the largest university in the province, the University of Manitoba employs more than 6000 support and academic staff. Our disability management and employee well-being program is designed to minimize the personal and financial effects of disability. 

The Employee Well-Being Manager collaborates with injured/ill employees, physicians, healthcare providers, union representatives, university management, human resources and thir party administrators to identify suitable return to work options.  Of key importance is encouraging the safe return to productive employment by employees on sick leave and ensuring that applications for long-term disability benefits are made by employees who are disabled from performing their duties.  The Employee Well-Being Manager also facilitates and coordinates graduated return to work programs for injured/ill employees and monitors progress during such critical periods.

The Employee Well-Being Manager is here to assist your department with:

  • Administering sick leave and attendance management programs
  • Developing return-to-work plans that may involve special accommodations
  • Developing and facilitating training programs related to disability management and return-to-work initiatives
