​Employee Assistance Program & Wellness Benefits

Employee health and well-being is important to the State of Wisconsin. The State has many well-being tools and resources such as on-site fitness centers, a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and other wellness benefits and incentives through the State of Wisconsin's Group Health Insurance Program.  Learn more about our employee wellness programs here: Employee Benefits and Wellness.​


The State also offers a voluntary employee mediation program, where trained peers work together to help resolve conflicts and foster an inclusive, respectful workplace environment.

Flexibility, Telecommuting and Alternative Work Patterns (AWP)

Many state agencies and positions offer flexible work schedules, including alternative work patterns and telecommuting options.  

You can read more about this policy here: Flexible Schedules and Alternative work Patterns.

Equity, Inclusion & Diversity (EID) Initiatives

As of 2019, all state agencies are required to publicly reaffirm their commitment to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce through their agency-specific Equity and Inclusion Plans.  These plans analyze workforce trends within the agency, identify areas of improvement in the areas of recruitment, retention, and workplace culture practices, and set goals to achieve progress in those areas.  You can find each agency's Equity & Inclusion Plan on their department's website. You can also learn more about the State's Equity and Inclusion structure here: EEO-AA Resources​.​​​
