About

About

The WorkWell Center (formerly known as the Center for Work and Family Life) has been providing programs and services for USC faculty, staff, and their dependents, as well as post-docs and retirees, for 40 years. As the world around us continues to change – and our faculty and staff strive to make health and well-being a part of their everyday lives – we, too, evolve.

As one of the many benefits offered to USC faculty and staff, our services include the traditional Employee Assistance Program offerings but go beyond with innovative health and well-being programs that help support the whole person.

Work-life wellness places a focus on being your best self personally and professionally.

Simply put, our work life affects our well-being because we bring our whole self to work, and we bring our whole self, including work, into our homes. The WorkWell Center recognizes that our thoughts, feelings, physical health, and environment are all interconnected with job performance.

With the tools and support we offer, we set out to enhance and elevate the faculty and staff experience. We collaborate with campus partners to create a campus culture of health and well-being, infusing health into all programs, policies, services, and work and learning environments.
