IBM Corporation

"IBMers around the world face a growing challenge in integrating work and personal/family responsibilities in a 24 by 7 global economy. The goal of our work/life programs is to support and enable IBMers to meet these challenges while continuing to provide our clients the innovative products, services and support they have come to expect from us. That's why we value our partnership with the ABC. The ABC's focus on helping IBMers to take care of themselves and their dependents resonates with our employees. The support they provide is often the critical factor that enables IBMers to achieve balance and integration of their personal and work lives. Giving our employees this kind of readily available support for this important responsibility is yet another reason why IBM attracts and retains such a talented workforce."

IBM's Work/Life Mission Statement:
IBM Work/Life programs have been established to help employees better manage their work and personal lives. These programs accomplish this by creating a flexible work environment which is sensitive to an individual's needs and responsibilities. At the same time, these programs stimulate the development and expansion of community programs that enhance the quality of life.

It is in IBM's best interest to help employees balance the pressures of work with the demands of home. Through these work/life programs, employees have greater access to the workplace and are more productive because their personal issues can be easily addressed.
