Get more out of your workday and find balance in your life with these tips from the Employee Assistance Program.
Having a good work-life balance is critical for health and well-being, but many people don’t know how to balance their work in relationship to other areas of their lives. Heightened responsibilities, increased use of new technology such as Zoom and GoToMeeting, and the needs of those you serve are just some of the things that can place demands on your work life, often leaving little time for family, friends, or yourself.
If you are working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the line between work and home life may be further blurred.
While you can’t add hours to your day, you can control how you manage your time. Here are some time-saving tips to help restore balance in your life.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP),* administered by Cigna, can help with job and career issues, including training and development, handling workplace stress or change, managing workplace conflicts, and more. Through the EAP, you can talk with an EAP advocate who will listen to your concerns and can direct you to helpful tools and resources, including seminars, e-learning, and articles on topics such as Planning for Professional Growth, Emotional Intelligence for Success, and Goal Setting for Personal and Professional Excellence, to name a few.
To get help from the EAP, call Cigna at 866-640-2772 or log on to Cigna’s website (one-time registration is required; use pcusa for Employee’s Employer ID). All EAP services are completely confidential and there’s no cost to you. Your family members and anyone who lives with you can use the EAP, too.
Learn about other no-cost services available through the EAP.
*The EAP is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan.
