Welcome to the Office of Work, Life and Engagement

We are here to support the faculty and staff of The Johns Hopkins University and employees of The Johns Hopkins Health System and Hospital achieve a healthy mix between work, personal life and academic pursuits.  Sometimes our pace of life challenges our quality of life.  Work comes home and conversely, home impacts work. 

These intersections of work and life can divert our time and attention in ways that make us feel out of balance.  That’s why we offer a wide range of programs and services aimed at bolstering each person’s work/life effectiveness.  Whether it’s finding child care, finding housing, managing financial stressors, or figuring out how to take care of an aging parent who might live far way, WorkLife Programs can help. 

And because we know that unchecked work/life issues can impact our well-being, we offer the services of the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP) to help you manage problems of daily living and other mental health concerns. 

We also believe that everyone has something to offer and hope you’ll get involved in our Community Programs - whether giving blood, giving financially or giving your time – community engagement is an important part of the Johns Hopkins community. 

Working for one of the Johns Hopkins Institutions can be both challenging and rewarding.  We are here to support you in a private and confidential manner.  As you peruse this site to see how we can help, please pay close attention to various program eligibility as it may vary based on your specific employer.  The vast majority of our services are available to faculty and staff, to employees, and to your family members.  Please contact us with questions or to access services.  We look forward to partnering with you.
