Staff and faculty are encouraged to attend an education session to learn more about their employee benefits plan. The sessions are part of a comprehensive review of the Queen’s Employee Benefits Plan announced this past May.

Presented by Human Resources, the 90-minute sessions will take place over several weeks from Oct. 19 to Nov. 1. The content for the education sessions was developed in partnership with the Multi-Employee Group Employee Benefits Committee, which is comprised of participants from university employee groups, and the university’s benefits consultant, Mercer.

Employee Benefits Plan Education Sessions
* Wednesday, Oct. 19, 9:30-11 am, Jeffery Hall Room 126
* Thursday, Oct. 20, Noon-1:30 pm, Haynes Hall
* Tuesday, Oct. 25, 9:30-11 am, Kinesiology Building Room 101
* Tuesday, Oct. 25, 4-5:30 pm, Ellis Hall Room 327
* Tuesday, Nov. 1, Noon-1:30 pm, Jeffery Hall Room 127
* Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2:30-4 pm, Jeffery Hall Room 127

Following the education sessions, a confidential survey will be emailed in November to employees who are eligible to receive benefits. The survey will also be available in paper form for those who do not have access to a computer at work.

“I would encourage all faculty and staff to attend one of the sessions. Not only is it a great way to get a better understanding of the benefits plan, but it will help staff and faculty be better informed when it comes time to complete the survey,” says Dan Bradshaw, Interim Associate Vice-Principal (Human Resources). 

At each session, participants will receive an overview of Queen’s insured benefits plan for active members, including plan details and how they compare to the market. The sessions will also cover group insurance fundamentals, consumer tips, and broader trends in benefits.

Registration for the sessions is not mandatory; however, it is appreciated in order to ensure that all attendees can be accommodated. To register for an employee session, visit the Learning Catalogue
