Work-Life on the Web

Today, we are all challenged with finding ways to manage our personal and work lives. Boundaries are often blurred and we face decisions about where, when and how to accomplish our To Do list.

The Emory WorkLife Resource Center provides faculty, staff and graduate students with programs and resources to help manage this often overwhelming challenge. Below are some resources we found on the web that may be useful to you:
