WorkLife Assistant - Save Time, Live Your Life

One Solution for Work/Life Balance

WorkLife Assistant

Life Happens

While as a physician or provider, you are likely blessed with above-average intelligence, competence and endurance, what you undoubtedly lack is time. The demands of your practice, family and friends, special interests and hobbies mean you have limited time to pursue a healthy work/life balance. There’s a difference between “having it all” and “doing it all.” Your WorkLife Assistant* helps you prioritize what you need or want to do yourself by allowing you to delegate tasks not requiring your attention.

Assistant Concierge

Real World: Could this happen to you?

Time Management:

Situation: Part of the sandwich generation, a healthcare provider struggles with a busy work schedule, a young family and an aging parent.

Solution: A WorkLife Assistant scheduled a peer coach and senior consultant to not only develop work/life balance practices, but also to find the support needed to handle time-sensitive tasks.

Outcome:  The healthcare provider is able to manage time at the clinic productively and now has more quality time at home with family while supporting their parent.


Time Critical:

Situation: A physician’s child spills juice in the car on the way to a full day at the clinic.

Solution: A WorkLife Assistant arranges for the car to be detailed while the physician is caring for patients and before the spilled juice has time to stain the car’s interior.

Outcome: The doctor completed a successful work day and was able to pick up the child from daycare in a clean car, free of juice stains.
