Work, Life and Engagement brings workshops to departments

The Office of Work, Life and Engagement each year presents some 85 employee-targeted lunchtime workshops on such topics as work-life effectiveness, aging, finances, homeownership, parenting, and well-being—and now it's easy to have them come to you.

Responding to interest from individuals and departments, the office has assembled an online catalog of approximately 40 workshops that can be requested for staff meetings, in-service trainings, or retreats. Think a group in your office would benefit from learning more about the university's Faculty and Staff Assistance Program or about Smart Money Moves in your 20s and 30s? Or maybe they'd be interested in hearing about Helping Your Parents Age Well or When Adult Children Move Back Home.

It's easy to find programs that are a good fit. In order to move forward with planning the workshop, a guarantee of at least 10 participants is required. The person responsible for organizing the department's meetings and trainings should complete the online request form at least one month before the meeting/training. The department must arrange for both a room for the workshop and any necessary audio/video equipment.

Offerings are subject to change based on facilitator availability. If the department requests a workshop led by an expert outside of Johns Hopkins, there may be a speaking fee, which the department pays.
