Work-Life Balance

Blending your work and personal responsibilities requires flexibility and a shared commitment between employees and managers. The drive in each of us demands that we remain attentive to creating a healthy balance between work, personal and family life, and to having the tools needed to adjust when situations change.

We offer benefits aimed at providing employees with support and flexibility, and encourage managers to discuss these topics openly with all employees. Some of the following work/life programs and resources are available globally; all are available in the United States:


  • Adoption assistance and reimbursement
  • Childcare support options
  • Backup/emergency child and elder care
  • Lactation rooms
  • Dependent-care flexible spending accounts
