Work-Life Balance And Wellness

We understand the balancing act between work and personal life. FEMA helps restore the balance by offering family-friendly health and wellness benefits that give you flexibility and peace of mind. We offer the following:

  • Telework (mobile work) is offered with forward-thinking telework policies and a nimble IT environment, allowing you to do work and access IT resources anywhere, anytime.
  • Innovative, open and collaborative workspaces.
  • Flexible work schedules.
  • Employee Assistance Programs.
  • Childcare subsidies assist lower income families in paying for childcare.
  • Transit subsidies pay mass transit costs when commuting to and from work.

We also participate in WorkLife4You, a program that helps you find childcare, adult care, fitness centers, schools, adoption resources, home improvement professionals, movers, and more — all with confirmed eligibility and conformance to your needs. WorkLife4You also offers backup emergency dependent care for children and seniors.
