How Fill Out Benefit Change Form              

Are you on the company benefits program? Do you need to make an update to your benefits, including changing your address, updating your dependents, changes to secondary insurance plans, etc.?

Changes to your benefits can be made by filling out a Benefits Change form which you can ask for from your Manager. Changes affecting benefit premiums and status must be completed within 30 days to avoid any penalties or denial of the requested changes.  If you have any questions about how to fill out the form please ask your manager or you can email 


Tips to Prevent Burnout                

Did you know burnout is not just an emotional problem? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines burnout as: “Exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation usually as a result of prolonged stress or frustration.”

Burnout usually occurs for one of two reasons: Lack of rest or rejuvenation or lack of motivation or reward

Over the past 50 years rest has acquired a bad reputation. "You can rest when you are dead "is how the thinking goes.

However, work and rest are two complementary sides of the same cycle, and they enhance each other. We know this intuitively because we love getting a good night’s sleep after a day of positive and productive work and love going to work when we feel refreshed and on top of our game. When the cycle is working well, we feel positive momentum; when not, we feel drained.
