Lifeworks September Feature: Returning to Work After a Leave of Absence

LifeWorks, Illinois Tech’s Employee Assistance Program, offers a new work-life balance highlight each month. This month’s feature is Returning to Work After a Leave of Absence. Managers have an additional feature on Welcoming Employees Back from a Leave of Absence.

Taking time away from work can be challenging. This month’s features can provide resources for easing back in to work at your own pace, and creating a smart plan of action to guide your return. Since everyone’s path to reintegration is different, it often helps to get back to a structured routine. This can include regulating your sleep and meal schedule or slowly easing back into a regular fitness program. Check out some more tips in the article Returning to Work After a Long-Term Absence: Get the help and support you need.
