Family Care Benefit Available to Faculty and Staff; Join a Learning Session May 25 or 26

Life can be unpredictable and finding the right ongoing care for your family can be difficult, especially when you’re balancing the demands of work. To help ease this burden, the University offers premium membership with the caregiving website to benefits-eligible faculty and staff.

Care@Work provides free, unlimited access to a vast network of caregivers with a breadth of skills—including child care, tutors, elder care, pet walkers and sitters, housecleaners and more. Typically, users would pay up to $38.99/month for a premium account with the site, which provides the ability to contact potential caregivers, access background checks and check caregiver references.

Curious about this benefit and want to learn more? The Office of Human Resources is offering two upcoming Zoom learning sessions with representative Michael Brunson. These sessions will provide an overview of the benefit, educate users on steps to enroll and demonstrate how to use the site to search for a caregiver. Use the links below to sign up for the session that works best for your schedule.

With any questions about the family care benefit, faculty and staff may contact HR Shared Services at 315.443.4042 or
