Recharge in October

Wellbeing Day and Recharge Week for UNSW Staff in October

The third Recharge Week for 2022 will be held from Tuesday 18 October to Friday 21 October, with Monday 17 October designated a Wellbeing Day for staff.

Wellbeing Day is an additional day of leave where the University encourages as many staff as possible to take the day off work and prioritise the time for personal health. Staff who cannot take 17 October as a day off due to existing commitments should take another day of their choosing before the end of the year.

Recharge Week Returns in July

The second Recharge Week for 2022 will be held from Monday 4 to Friday 8 July

Recharge Week is about creating headspace for you and your colleagues, and aims to promote and prioritise the wellbeing of staff. During this week the University encourages staff to reduce meetings and emails, as much as is practicable, as a way of freeing up time to focus, plan and catch up on work. Recharge Week is still a regular working week, however with reduced email traffic and meetings.

UNSW also encourages taking some annual leave during this time if appropriate.
