WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio — WorkLife4You began on Oct. 1, 2016, by Federal Occupational Health. Like the Employee Assistance Program, WorkLife4You focuses on federal civilian employees.

The program helps to meet worker’s daily life challenges by providing resource referral services to employees across the country and overseas. It is designed to empower civilians and their dependents to better manage and simplify daily life.

Barbara Blair, Air Force Materiel Command program manager, EAP WorkLife4You, said, “In the short time that we have had WorkLife4You in AFMC, I have personally benefitted from the time-saving assistance. It provides service to civilians.”

WorkLife4You can assist with questions associated with daily activities and needs. Take moving, for example. Need help selecting a realtor, a school district, a doctor for a special needs child, or a veterinarian for the family dog? The types of questions asked and answered are limitless. Let WorkLife4You do the research.

WorkLife4You specialists provide telephonic and online assistance any time of day, every day of the week. Referral services range from child or adult care, to education, career development, personal health and wellness, and much more. Based on specific need, WorkLife4You specialists will do the legwork and then provide a detailed report for use in making the most informed decision possible.

Free kits are available to support and enhance the most common topics requested. The kits are available to civilian employees and dependents, covering prenatal, child safety, college, adult caregiver and wellness. Each kit contains information and free products to help answer questions.

Online services include monthly webinars, tips and articles relating to nearly any life situation. Educational guides are available to help in navigating various challenges.

In customer response surveys, more than 97 percent of persons polled were more than satisfied with the program and the specialists who provided the support. An even greater number indicated they will use the program again. Those surveyed explained how using WorkLife4You decreased their stress and saved them time - more than 13 hours per request.

Whether needs relate to a child, parent, pet or a career, WorkLife4You is there to help 24 hours a day. Register today by calling 1-800-222-0364 or go online to www.worklife4you.com. Click on ‘Start Now’ and enter registration code: AFMC.
