Work-Life Balance


Nov. 13, 2020, 3pm to 4pm

Office/Remote Location



Our current working conditions mean we are juggling rapidly changing directives from work while also trying to manage a new normal at home. The average work week lengthened by nearly 5 hours following stay-at-home orders and lockdowns. How do you maintain your work-life balance when for many of us, our work has moved into our home? How do you emotionally clock out when faced with surmounting challenges or, even worse, layoffs? Work-life balance has always been an important topic, but it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy work-life balance. 

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Obtain a snapshot of how work habits and communications styles have changed as we have transitioned to virtual work environments
  • Review the importance of setting boundaries 
  • Obtain tips to disconnect from work-life after you’ve “clocked-out”
  • Identify strategies on how to create designated work spaces
