Work-life integration doesn’t look the same for everyone, and it may even look different for you depending on the day. Below is our staff’s take on work-life fit. As you read through, ask yourself — what does work-life mean to you?

We asked our staff about this topic and here is what they said.
SENIOR DIRECTOR OF WORKLIFE STRATEGY
"Both the challenge and the opportunity to set high expectations for my career trajectory, my family commitments, and my community involvement. And leveraging the resources, networks, and safety nets available to meet those expectations."
"Work-Life to me means being able to face life challenges at work and personal life, as they meld with one another."
CHILD AND FAMILY RESOURCE COORDINATOR
"It means that my personal life goals are being met and my work goals are being met and my contributions are recognized."
WorkLife PROGRAM Coordinator
"Work-Life means finding ways to align my personal goals and career so I can have a more integrated experience."
WORKLIFE PORTFOLIO MANAGER
"Identifying what matters most to me--- in my career, in my family, in my friendships, and in my community. And being able to bring my whole self to each in a way that enables me to be present, productive, creative and fulfilled."

"WorkLife means making what matters most the highest priority each day and having the full awareness that integration is key to a fulfilling, rich life."
