Resources for Employees

MSU staff, faculty, graduate student assistants and retirees (and the spouses and partners and benefits-eligible children of these people) have access to the MSU Employee Assistance Program, which at the moment is providing all of its counseling sessions over the phone or videoconferencing via Zoom. Please call 517-355-4506 to set up an appointment.

Employees also can still access MSU Health4U via videoconferencing. 

International faculty, staff and visiting scholars can contact the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) for assistance.

Other resources for caregivers and parents include:

  • Care.com/msu: Find trusted care providers. MSU faculty and staff can get free access to search for childcare, special needs care, tutoring help, private lessons, housekeeping, pet care and more. Learn how to get free access
  • Consultations: contact the WorkLife Office about work, career, and family questions, gather resources, and get referral information based on the conversation.
  • Backup Dependent Care for children and adult dependents: subsidized support for in-home and center-based care

The WorkLife Office is working with return to campus committees to help us figure out how to know what work must be done on campus, and what work might be done remotely. That will help identify those employees who need to return to campus. Find resources related to flexible work arrangements here.  

The Wellbeing at Work guide provides evidence-based best practices to recruit and retain high-quality candidates and create healthier workplaces and teams, as we take care of our well-being and the well-being of each other. It is a tool to use from any position when thinking about strengthening a team or a unit.
