Support added to respond to employees’ family needs

As the University of Florida aspires to become one of the nation’s top public research universities, we are dedicated to elevating our suite of benefits offerings to support the wellbeing of our faculty and staff and to be responsive to a range of individual and family needs.

Inspired by a recently published article co-authored by UF faculty Michelle Cardel and Christine Angelini, UFHR has dedicated a member of its benefits team to serve as a “family resource officer” to help acquaint new faculty and staff with family resources and to provide information on FMLA and paid family leave policies.

To supplement these efforts, UFHR Benefits has negotiated additional GatorPerks discounts on several childcare providers. Visit the GatorPerks website to learn more.

Further resources designed to support a range of UF employees’ family needs may be found on the UFHR Worklife website.
