Thank you for encouraging your employees to take the online health insurance and benefits survey. We had a 68 percent response rate, so we know employees are very passionate about this topic.

hr-topics-id-270wOpen enrollment is one of our biggest financial decisions of the year and impacts both our personal and financial well-being. As you know, we will be changing healthcare providers, and UnitedHealthcare coverage will begin Friday, January 1, 2016.
