TCD celebrates Work Life Balance Day

Posted on: 29 February 2008

National Work Life Balance (WLB) Day takes place on Friday 29 February. This initiative, run in conjunction with the Equality Authority as part of their national WLB day, essentially involves trying to achieve a balance between your professional, personal and family life.

Trinity College launched a number of events and initiatives to celebrate Work Life Balance Day including, among others, a meditation for staff session, the introduction of a ‘Buddy System’ for all new parents, an information seminar for carers in the College and retirement planning seminars.

“We ask that Schools and Areas talk about the concept and challenge themselves to act on the day. Even simple activities like taking a walk during lunch can improve your sense of balance,” commented Louise Power, Personnel Officer.
