Work-life balance has been at the front of many leaders’ minds in recent years. So whom do federal agencies call on? Adam Fernandes, director at Eagle Hill Consulting. Described as a one-of-a-kind work-life balance thought leader, Fernandes changes how clients approach the issue as well as challenges his colleagues to get this balance every day.
Since 2011, four federal agencies have partnered with Eagle Hill to improve their work-life program, including the Transportation Security Administration. Fernandes, 32, brought a fresh perspective to TSA by aligning the work-life program to the agency’s mission and goals, wrote Shontelle Rivers, TSA project manager. With Fernandes’ help implementing the program as well as a performance measurement plan, Rivers said TSA’s work-life program participation increased by 50 percent.
“The impact he has had on TSA is significant,” Rivers wrote. “The contributions he has made to the greater [work-life balance] conversation may be even greater.”
