Why does MSU need an office to address work life?

Resources, services and opportunities are sometimes hard for individuals to locate and coordinate on such a large and varied campus. The WorkLife Office is meant to be a one-stop destination where you can be confident that someone will know where and how to find a resolution to your concern, or provide information or education to help you think about it, and empower you to act for yourself or with the right supports. The WorkLife Office keeps its finger on the pulse of the community to identify emerging needs, shifts in the workforce that require different approaches or services, and to provide recommendations for programs, changes and new initiatives that help faculty and staff make the most of their personal and work lives together.
