The Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Office of Work/Life/Wellness helps agencies develop and implement work/life programs by providing them assistance, guidance, and information. OPM also offers agencies an opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas through work/life coordinator meetings, training events, and teleconferences to address issues and work/life initiatives. Agencies have reported that OPM has been helpful. However, it could do more to help agencies by more systematically tracking and evaluating data on the implementation and evaluation of work/life programs and sharing this information with federal agencies.
