WHO provides its staff and workforce with physical, psychological, social, financial and organizational working conditions that protect and promote health and safety. It enables managers and workers to increase control over their own health and to improve it, and to become more energetic, positive with more opportunities to grow in life.
It provides free facilities for in house Gym, yoga classes, and subsidized food
One of the best places to work at, considering the salary rates, benefits (maternity, sick & annual leaves) and most importantly the health benefits
Good organization salary-wise and benefits-wise, health insurance coverage is very good, dental, hospitalization, eye check-up, consultation expenses for which are reimbursable (80%), children below 18 y/o receive monthly allowances.
high salary rates and very good benefits
Chances for promotion is slim for admin staff, politics (sometimes) play a role in selecting staff for higher posts
One year and some months of Working there gave me the feel of filed work. It stressful but was worth it as it relate to my passion and soft spot for children. The program was meant for helping children to be immuned from the polio virus. I can say it, to some extent met it goals.
It was a good job, they provide us security and life safety because there in FATA polio is not consid good the think that it's a pree plan of others counties to down us, we as a Team worker give advice to people that these vaccines are good for children and protect the children from polio
The only gave to us security
The most unique and impactful place I've ever worked in. Its a place to see real results in improving people's health, and keeping them safe in emergencies. Surrounded by the top experts in their field. Always something to earn, challenges to overcome. Opportunities to become a leader in your field. Learn and grow. And contribute.
amazing colleagues, great learning and growth opportunities
some programmes require long working hours, travel to dangerous places.
The Organisation is full of unhealthy working climate, obviously lots depends on the unit, but in general the management is old fashioned,very hierarchical, applying micromanagement as a main tool, and with no respect for lower position tenders. The personal interest of a number of managers are put higher than the Organisation's needs. Very disappointing, knowing the history and initial purpose of the creation of WHO.
Salary, benefits, medicine knowledge (in the according departments)
Unhealthy emotional climate, disrespectful treatment, long years for career growth, low web culture and technical development
Good atmosphere at World Health Organization is one of the best organization in the world who provides as many as job opportunities .I was nothing before joining world health organization today I am doing the duty of ttsp which was not effected since March 2020 just because of cov 19 . But I am still sat and with world health organization . I keep it up as long as possible.
My main responsibilities were to train the mental health worker working in the Cox's Bazar district of Bangladesh as well as Ruhingya camp.I have followed mhGAP IG version 2.0 for training purposes.
Training which is the best thing that I got from my working time Cooperation with friends during the working days Good place of work and fit in my life time Difficult time during field activities when during rain fall time
I wish I could be back to normal activities
Lack of communication in some areas, transport which affect my reports
WHO is an agency under UN therefore it is a humanitarian organisation, so working there is an opportunity to serve humanity
I worked with WHO on SPECIAL SERVICE AGREEMENT (SSA) and was relieved of my job due to polio virus eradication in Nigeria. Thete is no fund to maintain staff under polio eradication program. I really contributed to this historic achievement. WHO has achieved more in providing health for all around the globe and it need to be funded adequately in order to achieve more.
Salary is commiserate and is paid in time, Working environment is conducive with computers and cellphones to aid the work
No staff development programme in terms of training either locally or internationally
