Resources to help employees with various life challenges are gearing up for fall offerings.
The WorkLife Resource Center's Finance Matters series has "Principles of Investing" on Sept. 23. Workshops through November address retirement savings, legal issues like wills and trusts, understanding health care costs and more.
"The Finance Matters workshop series has been very successful. We had over 1,200 registrations for the workshops last year," says John Kosky, associate director of the WorkLife Resource Center.
A workshop series for those caring for another adult begins Sept. 8.
All workshops are free and open to all Emory employees and their guests.

The Employee Student Job Network goes into a higher gear with the return of students.
The Emory-only service pairs students looking for work with faculty and staff looking for help.
"The most common posts continue to be babysitting and tutoring, but we have seen posts from staff looking for a student to help coach their child in a sport or teach them to play the piano," Audrey Adelson at WorkLife says.

Emory's Faculty Staff Assistance Program plans groups on anger management skills and grief and loss support.
Also coming is a series of life cycle workshops on "Caring for the Caregiver," "Building Stable Spousal/Partner Bonds," "Career Resiliency" and "Take Charge of Your Fitness."
