Thank you for taking the time to read For Your Benefit, a newsletter about the benefits you’re offered as a UT employee.
This issue covers a variety of topics such as questions employees have about pay, campus-specific benefits and the 2017 President’s Award winners. We’ve also included reminders about the 2017 Partnership Promise, such as how to complete your biometric screening and how to participate in the new coaching system, if you are called.
I hope you find these stories helpful and encourage you to share comments and suggestions by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
