Infoservice Work-Family Balance

People studying or working at the University of Graz come from and live in different contexts. Which interests, worries and responsibilities need to be harmonised with their student or professional lives is often not apparent. Differences and similarities have to be taken into account for the smooth organisation of collaboration and work content on a long-term basis.

Managerial staff – what you need to know

• Family-related care responsibilities should not be a reason for imbalance or have negative consequences for the recruitment phase or daily working life.

• Addressing the issues of education/work- family balance, requires sensitivity as well as knowledge on facts and general conditions.

• Regardless of the particular situation, those concerned require information as quickly as possible: on legal and financial provisions, childcare, schools, mobile services, long-term care benefit and places in  care facilities - in short, information on family-related arrangements in Austria and informal networking and exchange. →unikid-Info →unicare-Info

• On the other hand, you as a managerial member of staff require information on leave-related possibilities and limits and are responsible for handling the following issues in your team: opportunities for discussion, passing on information, planning holidays, organising substitutes, etc.

• unikid & unicare is happy to handle these and other queries related to education/work- family balance on a non-obligatory and confidential basis.
