We recognize that faculty, staff and students manage multiple obligations at work and at home, and the university fosters a culture in which individuals can achieve life satisfaction and optimal performance.

What is Work-Life Satisfaction?

Suggestions for Getting a Better Work-Life Balance that is Right for You:

  • Define and create your own work-life balance
  • Be accountable for balancing your personal and professional commitments
  • Help your manager understand the right balance for your life and help to work out an arrangement that supports your needs
  • Strive for meaningful achievements and enjoyments in work, family, friends, and self each day.

Work-life satisfaction can be a daily effort to find meaningful achievement of the things you enjoy most. This might include factors such as your family, friends, community participation, self-care, spirituality and other personal issues as well as the demands of the workplace. Of course, work-life satisfaction may not mean an equal balance of all factors and what works for one person may not work for all people. Having work-life satisfaction helps employees to feel as if they are able to pay attention to all the important aspects of their lives. It is important to keep in mind that what works for you now may not work for you in the future, therefore it is necessary to reassess your situation periodically in order to make the appropriate adjustments.
