The Open Enrollment Employee Benefits and Wellness Kickoff Forum will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, October 12, from 9 – 11 a.m. To connect simply go to www.kent.edu/zoomopenenrollment. During the session, we will cover:

Presenters for this session will be Jack Witt, vice president for Human Resources and Kim Hauge, executive director for Employee Benefits, Wellness and Health Promotion. This session will also be videotaped so employees who are unable to attend the live Zoom can view the recorded edition from our Employee Benefits webpage beginning the week of October 18. The video will be available throughout the Open Enrollment period.

There will be time allotted during our live presentation to submit questions to the presenters. A follow-up post card reminder will be sent to all full-time, benefits-eligible employees reminding them of the Open Enrollment Kick Off meeting, as well as the Open Enrollment election period. In the interim, mark your calendars and save October 12, 9 – 11 a.m., for your Zoom Open Enrollment Kickoff presentation.
