In this article we argue that higher education institutions ought to be a reflection of society: its vision, values, conscience and ways of doing. It has as its task the production of for participation in a global economy and by virtue of its position in society, ought to be able to do justice to that. In this article we draw on a case study of incorporation, as part of reshaping the Higher Education landscape in South Africa, not only to give voice to staff involved in an incorporation process, but also to explore the effect thereof on them.

Drawing on this example, we argue for prioritising the well-being of by ensuring workplace wellness, in order to set an example and to make a real contribution to the well-being of society.
