What they do:
CUSU is a charity that exists to improve the experience of students across the Coventry University Group. It's run by students, for students.
How Thrive at Work has impacted the organisation:
Since joining Thrive, CUSU has created a culture of being a supportive and flexible organisation with an 'open door' policy. They have introduced a variety of working patterns, giving staff better control over their work-life balance. Since lockdown, staff use Microsoft Teams for communication, and this has been used to raise awareness on a variety of health and wellbeing initiatives including a pedometer challenge and used local organisation Arty Folks to host a craft workshop for mental health. They have also introduced Mental Health Awareness training.
