Our WorkLife services help employees balance the competing demands of work and family life. A WorkLife specialist is available to consult with UPMC employees on legal matters, financial concerns, elder and childcare needs, and more. Employees also have access to a comprehensive, Web-based resource center with thousands of informative articles, search tools, and printable documents to make their lives easier.

Coaching and Counseling Services

LifeSolutions coaching and counseling services assist our employees and their family members with successfully navigating life’s twists and turns. Employees can speak to a professional counselor, by phone or in person, to address any personal or work-related challenge, no matter how big or small.

Health and Wellness

LifeSolutions provides support to quit smoking, lose weight, manage stress, cope with anxiety, or reach any other wellness goal, by addressing what gets in the way of successful behavior change. Coaching and counseling assistance, Web-based resources, webcasts and podcasts, and more, are available to UPMC employees.
