Perfectionism and social wellbeing in the U.S. and U.K. systems of higher education can be considered as social phenomena since they are determined by the policy of Ministry for Education in these countries and are implemented in the practice of personnel management of the most well-known universities. Perfectionism as a behavioral model results from social perception of the necessity to pursue rapid development, create strength margin, economic sustainability, future forecast – on the basis of experience accumulated by the previous generations. Perfectionism becomes evident in the practice of screening the best candidates for faculty positions, performance evaluation by the highest professional criteria, personnel motivation for advanced achievements. Social wellbeing is an important condition of faculty perfectionism. Being a complex phenomenon, social wellbeing embraces all aspects of human activity related to profession: physical, emotional, psychological, financial state, social roles, connections and relations.

Social wellbeing and perfectionism are interrelated phenomena: the former is the main value of social life, while the latter is a means and condition of achieving social wellbeing.
