Healthier Minds Healthier Lives:

Implementing Work-Life Balance Policies

for Public Service Employees

Delegate: Juanyce Taylor
State: Mississippi



As part of her Vision 2020 State Initiative, Taylor is exploring the benefits of family-friendly policies impacting work-life balance (within state government) with particular focus on telework or telecommuting and flex-time for state employees. The intent is to introduce the idea to the governor of Mississippi for consideration. 

The short-term objective for this project is to identify potential partners to support/endorse this project, and the long-term objectives are to continue to raise awareness on the importance of work-life balance policies, to influence and increase the number of state agencies implementing work-life balance policies, and to also improve productivity among employees who take advantage of work-life balance options on the job.
