LifeWorks JULY FEATURES:
Work and Parenting
If you’re a working mom or dad, chances are most days are a juggling act—dealing with childcare, kids’ busy schedules as well as your own, job pressures, and trying to do your best at work and at home.
LifeWorks is offering special support this month to working parents. See the Work and Parenting feature (live July 1 to 31 on the platform’s homepage in “Featured Articles”), where you’ll find helpful information for parents of infants and teens and all ages in between. Also, check out our new Working Parents Toolkit for tips on planning your parental leave, handling sibling rivalry, managing stress as a family, and more. Or, access other helpful resources on the platform, such as:

Remember, you can contact LifeWorks to speak with a consultant any time you could use support as a working parent.
Anger in the Workplace
An angry individual can be a disruption at work—and possibly a danger. Knowing how to deal with an angry person—whether an employee, customer, or co-worker—can help keep a situation from escalating.
Remember that you can contact LifeWorks to speak with a professional consultant for guidance and support with issues that may be affecting your team’s productivity, from conflict to difficult behaviours at work.
Check out our manager feature this month on dealing with Anger in the Workplace (live on the platform’s homepage in “Featured Articles” from July 1 to 31). You’ll find helpful strategies on managing anger at work, and on promoting a safe, respectful workplace. Consult the platform any time for resources related to your role, including:
