Call for nominations to recognize supervisors who support work/life balance

The Work/Life Resource Center is seeking nominations for the third annual Work/Life Champion Award for Supervisors.


Nominations are due by April 19. More information and a nomination form are available online.

The award recognizes U-M supervisors who promote work-life balance through consistent recognition of and responsiveness to their employee's professional and personal lives.

"Managers who are able to offer flexibility in the workplace truly make a difference at Michigan," says Jennie McAlpine, director of Work/Life Programs. "Every year, we hear hundreds of stories about supervisors, at all levels throughout the university, who make extraordinary efforts to help promote balance. This award is our opportunity to say 'thank you.'"

Staff at all university campuses and U-M Health System may nominate their faculty or staff supervisors for the award. Award recipients will receive a gift certificate and plaque, and will be honored at the annual Work/Life Resource Center "Connecting the Dots" Conference.
