Job flexibility

Job flexibility is a business tool that involves employees and managers in making changes to the way work gets done—the when, where, and how—in order to better meet the employee’s work-life needs and the business needs of the DLC. MIT’s Job Flexibility Guidelines provide tools, resources, and information designed to assist MIT employees and supervisors interested in planning, implementing, or managing flexible work arrangements.

Work-Life seminars and consultations

Seminars: Each spring and fall the MIT Work-Life Center’s popular Seminar Series provides research-based strategies and information to help you deal with a diverse array of work-life issues.

Consultations: Call on the MIT Work-Life Center whenever you need a solution, big or small. Whatever your phase of life and whatever your challenge, they’re here to lend support and connect you with helpful resources.
