The staff social services are intended for all the employees of UPMC (teaching and non-teaching staff) whether they are at work or on sick leave. Here you will find someone you can talk to, advice on your personal, family or professional life and, for those who so wish, information and support for particular difficulties (we guarantee the confidentiality of your discussions with us).
The professional code of ethics of the social advisor guarantees the confidentiality of the discussions of those who use the service. The social advisor for work-related issues, who maintains a constant relationship with the employees and different partners, has a very specific role as a point of communication and contact. She offers employees advice on their personal, family and professional concerns by providing information and support with difficulties that they may encounter. She participates in prevention policy, the improvement of living and working conditions within the establishment and the promotion of social programmes for staff. It is part of her work to make a clear evaluation of the social issues within and outside the establishment in an objective manner.
