Work-Life Resources Now Available 24/7
The Center for Work, Family & Personal Life announces an enhancement to their resource and referral service. Provided by Workplace Options, Work-Life Resources 24/7 consultants offer information and referrals to support personal, professional, and family life, on issues including child care, elder care, schools, legal and financial matters, relocating to Boston, volunteering, and more. This service is available to all MIT faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students at no charge. The MIT community can access the service by phone (877-847-4523) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to reach a consultant. Consultants can also be contacted via e-mail and live chat by logging onto the Work-Life Resources 24/7 Website at hrweb.mit.edu/worklife/worklife-resources. In addition, the site has articles, tools, tip sheets, provider listings, and searchable databases on a broad range of work-life issues.
One of the benefits of Work-Life Resources 24/7 is that it is a 24/7 service. However, the MIT community continues to have the option of contacting the Center for Work, Family & Personal Life directly and meeting with Center staff. “We’re delighted we can offer this new program to the MIT community,” says Rae Simpson, PhD, the Center’s Senior Program Manager for Parenting and Work-Life Communications and Resources. “But we want faculty to know that we’re always here for consultations, especially for urgent and complex issues.” For more information on contacting the Center see their Website: hrweb.mit.edu/worklife/contact. Or contact them directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org, 617-253-1592.
