Did you know the NIH is recognized as a leader among federal agencies in providing worklife resources and programs to all members of its workforce? The NIH has received the WorldatWork Seal of Distinction and has been named a Total Worker Health Affiliate by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

During the National Work and Family Month this October, the Office of Research Services and the Office of Human Resources hosted the inaugural WorkLife@NIH Information Fair. On October 16, over 100 participants learned first-hand about NIH programs and initiatives available to assist with their work obligations, family responsibilities, career development, and personal fulfillment. Be sure to mark your calendars for a bigger and better event in October 2019!
