Manage Your Life Better with Penn's Flexible Work Options

October 18, 2011, Volume 58, No. 08

This is the last in a series of articles this October to honor National Work and Family Month—a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of worklife benefits.

Juggling the needs of your personal and professional life can be challenging. From family obligations to workplace responsibilities to personal goals, managing all facets of your life is demanding at times. That’s why we offer guidance on setting up flexible work arrangements that can help you balance your needs at work and at home.

Flexible work options offer creative approaches to managing your own needs as well as the needs of your department. Whether it’s non-traditional work hours, a compressed job schedule or an off-campus worksite, flexibility in your work schedule can help you meet your goals in and out of the workplace while still meeting the business demands of the University.

If you’re considering flexible work options for yourself or your department, join us for a Flexible Work Options workshop on October 25. You’ll learn about a variety of options, how they work, and how to create a plan that’s right for you as well as the business needs of your department. Visit www.hr.upenn.edu/coursecatalog to register. Or visit www.hr.upenn.edu/quality/worklife/flexoptions to learn more about flexible work options at Penn.
