Erasmus University Rotterdam sets out to create a safe, respectful and healthy work environment. Your personal wellbeing is also important; aspects that affect it are the atmosphere in your department and the extent to which your work affects the balance between your workload and your capacity.   

Erasmus Vitality

The Erasmus Vitality programme has been set up to promote the physical fitness of our employees. The first element of this programme is Vitality@Work. These are exercise sessions in the workplace, conducted by the Erasmus Sport trainers. Every week the trainer performs a half-hour session.

Staying fit in times of corona

Vitality@Work is currently not physically available due to the measures regarding the coronavirus, but keep an eye on the Erasmus Sport website to take classes online!

Health Check

In addition to Vitaal @ Work, you can also request a Health Check as an employee. A Health Check is completed with a report with test and examination results


Employees of Erasmus University can use the facilities of the Erasmus Sports Centre Woudestein. The Executive Board subsidises the sports card due to which staff can use the sport facilities all year long for an attractive price.


In case of injuries there is a physiotherapy practise at campus Woudestein. The physiotherapist advises and guides patients and treats injuries. Prevention is also one of his tasks.


Erasmus University pursues an active policy with regard to reducing absenteeism due to illness. The policy is intended to:
- identify the causes of absenteeism, and in particular the work-related causes
- provide support and assistance to accelerate the process of re-integration
- prevent absenteeism.
