2020 Open Enrollment

2020 Benefits Open Enrollment runs from Friday, November 1 - Friday, November 15, 2019, at 5:00 EST. On November 1, employees will find their open enrollment event within their Workday inbox. In the coming weeks, we will post guides on how to complete the open enrollment process in Workday. We recommend attending one of our benefits presentations to learn about your benefits options and to ask questions of our benefits team. Most benefits for 2020 are the same as in 2019.
