We recently held our second WorkLife Programming Advisory Committee (WPAC) monthly meeting, and we’re beginning the hands-on work of understanding the quality of worklife blending here at Michigan Tech. Many issues have been brought to us: everything from childcare and elder care needs, to mentoring and professional development, and discussions of the technology infrastructure and services that are necessary to support a strong and flexible work environment.
While I hope you’ll take time to take this informal survey, I’d also like to invite you to get in touch if you’d like to participate on any of our subcommittees. Specifically, we are looking for interested individuals to help out with:
- Childcare and eldercare issues and concerns
- Policies that support a good work-life blend for University employees
- Mentoring opportunities
- IT service, software, and technology infrastructure needs that support worklife quality and flexible work options
- Professional and career development needs and interests
You can email me directly if you’re interested in helping out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
