Benefits Fair

Instead of having an onsite Employee Benefits Fair, webinars will be conducted where employees can hear directly from vendors about products in which they can make a choice. Benefits Administration will send a flier to you with registration links and more information provided they have an email address in Edison. Benefits Administration will also record the sessions and post them on the ParTNers YouTube page for employees to watch at their convenience.
