Work and Family Month

Work and Family Month

October observation was established in 2003 by U.S. Senate Resolution 210.

Aims to raise awareness of the importance of work-life policies and programs that attract, retain and engage a talented workforce.

“Reducing the conflict between work and family life should be a national priority”.

October is the national month to recognize organizations and leadership that support family-friendly policies, workplace flexibility and effective worklife integration practices.

Does your manager/supervisor provide emotional support, show sympathy, and offer day-to-day assistance and resources to facilitate your management of your professional and personal demands? Do they create flexibility around when, where and how work gets done with a focus on outcome? Are they a model of positive worklife integration?
This year, WorkLife and Wellness is honoring managers and supervisors who effectively identify and address the worklife challenges of their employees.
Employees may recognize their manager/supervisor as a Worklife Champion by completing this short nomination FORM.
Nominate your worklife champion manager/supervisor by September 12. The celebration will be a light breakfast reception, Tuesday, October 17, 8:00-9:30 at Putah Creek Lodge for the nominees as well as the nominators!
