NIH Employees Explore Work/Life Services
The Oct. 5 fair, "Real People, Real Choices: Quality of Work Life at NIH" gave employees a chance to see the broad range of work/life related services available to them at NIH. Representatives from 28 organizations including R&W, the Work and Family Life Center, FAES, CIVIL, the NIH Library, and Federally Employed Women were on hand to give out materials and talk about their services.
More than 350 people made time to stop by and chat with exhibitors. Attendees expressed a great deal of enjoyment, saying the fair was "friendly, informative and fun" and they learned about "services [they] did not know existed!"
The keynote speaker, author Linda Breen Pierce, spoke about the benefits of simplifying our lives. She left the audience with ideas about how they could integrate simplicity into their work and personal lives, and provoked a great deal of post-presentation discussion.
The event also included presentations of the QWL Awards and the R&W Service Awards, given to individuals who have made outstanding contributions in the last year.
