Work environment at LIME

Each department at Karolinska Institutet has a Work Environment Group which consists of representatives from different areas of activity, both employees, employers, as well as security representatives, student protection representatives and equal rights representatives. The group is a resource to the Head of Department when it comes to local work environment issues.

Quiet room - a room for stillness

If you need to take a break or just need a moment of stillness, there is a "Quiet room" at LIME located on floor 4.

Workplace meetings (Arbetsplatsträff - APT)

A workplace meeting is a forum, held on a regular basis with your group or unit, where local work environment issues are discussed. Contact your immediate manager to find out more about work place meetings within your particular group.

Employee survey giving feedback on the work environment

The employee survey provides a good basis for constantly developing the work environment and make people more content about their workplace. The employee survey is sent out every three years. The results for LIME can be found on Common/LIME-intra. It is up to each Head of Department and research group leader to ensure that the feedback is communicated within each group or unit. The group or unit will then together plan and carry out any measures that may be necessary and scheduled in an action plan.
