Be Well at Work Berkeley Manager News - October 2017

October is National Work and Family Month!

National Work and Family Month, established in 2003 and celebrated every October, focuses on the challenges working families face every day and is designed to communicate and celebrate the progress towards creating healthier and more flexible work environments. This month provides an important reminder of the power of work/life programs and policies to attract, retain and motivate employees and the business benefits of supporting work/life effectiveness programs.
Make the most of this year’s National Work & Family Month by thinking about flexibility, wellness, business goals and balance. Supervisors: how can you support the work/life flexibility needs of your employees, while meeting business goals? Employees: take some time to reflect on how well your work and personal/family life fit together. Think creatively about solutions. Explore the Work/Life resources, policies, and practices available at UC Berkeley.
