Physical Science Workplace Life Committee

Our Charter: To explore and address issues affecting workplace quality of life for the four Physical Sciences Divisions: Accelerator Technology & Applied Physics, Engineering, Nuclear Science, and Physics.

Who We Are: Our committee is composed of technical and administrative representatives from the Physical Sciences Area with support from Human Resources.

We value your input: If you have a workplace life issue you'd like to bring up, please use the Issues Form (see below) or email the committee at

Workplace quality of life can be influenced by a variety of factors including: work-life balance, workplace environment (safety, facilities, culture), health, benefits, compensation, career (trajectory, satisfaction, recognition), and IDEA.
