The Work-Life program strives to support a productive and performance-driven state workplace by accommodating the balance between work and life responsibilities. These options include Flexible Work Arrangements, Employee Discounts, and Resource and Referral information, which offer innovative and flexible management tools. These options are based on the core values of trust, respect, and support.
Work-Life options are intended to support state managers in getting work done efficiently, in a work culture that enhances citizen service and satisfaction by making the state a better place to work through innovative options and manager awareness. State managers are encouraged to engage in partnerships with employees to address issues and solve problems.
State employees are also intended to benefit from work-life and related programs by using the flexible tools and options management provides. This should help employees with the everyday balance between their job and life responsibilities.
The state's policy, as an employer, on work-related family issues has been established through Executive Orders and a Joint House Resolution. Executive Order D001 98 establishes accountability for leadership through the requirements to include work-life information in new employee orientation and to evaluate supervisors of state employees on their use of work-life options and practices. Other executive orders address job sharing and flextime for employees in the state personnel system. Joint Resolution 99-1044 encourages the use of certain work-life options as a means to address traffic congestion.
Work-Life options are not an employee right or benefit and implementation decisions rest solely with the appointing authority.
