New York State Extends Work-Life Solution
New York expands support services program for state workers.
New York State has announced plans to increase the number of state employees served by Ceridian's LifeWorks program from 36,000 to 200,000 executive branch employees. Ceridian's (www.ceridian.com
) programs provide support on a wide range of topics, including financial matters, parenting and childcare, resources for older adults, education, and the everyday issues that consume busy people's time.
In a program custom-tailored to the needs of New York State and its workers, Ceridian created a comprehensive work-life solution that offers relevant and immediate help to State employees and family members.
"We are very excited to be working with a public sector innovator to provide work-life solutions that will help state employees save time and manage their lives more productively," said Tony Holcombe, president of Ceridian Employer/Employee Services. "We have found that work-life programs are beneficial for attracting and retaining employees."
Ceridian's LifeWorks clients have included nearly 50 percent of the Fortune 100 companies and it is an industry leader serving 7,000 clients and over 8 million employees and their family members. Ceridian offers the public and private sectors a suite of managed business solutions for HRMS, payroll, tax filing, application outsourcing, time and attendance, benefits administration and employee effectiveness services.
In 1997, Ceridian began a pilot program for New York State that included a child and elder care resource and referral service for 36,000 State employees working in New York City. The success of this program led the move to extend the service to more state employees.
