We recently celebrated our team members who we've affectionately nicknamed "BenX-ers" with a Mardi Gras-themed event to salute their dedication. This recognition of their efforts over the last few months during our busiest time of year — annual enrollment — was well-deserved.
As benefits professionals and human resources experts know, the fall and winter seasons can be a hectic time. And our job is to make open enrollment run as smoothly as possible for our clients, so that they can leave the details and deadlines to us.
Fall and Winter of 2017-2018 were different, however - in a good way. As we shared earlier in this space, it has been a time of exciting growth for benefitexpress. This growth means we're implementing and launching solutions for new clients, while also ensuring smooth sailing for all of our existing clients. And once again, the team not only delivered, they excelled - with teamwork, accountability, creative problem-solving - all traits which are part of our community pillars and our hiring principles.
And so, when we return to the normal "busy-ness" of life at benefitexpress, we like to take a moment to celebrate the team and their hard work, which we did this week in Chicago and will do later this month for team members in our California office.
Raffle winners pose with their prizes.
In addition to merriment and dinner, a number of our business partners donated raffle prizes to help reward our team. More than 25 team members brought home prizes ranging from gift cards to iPads as well as hotel and airline tickets! Perhaps the most coveted prizes were the five chances to win a PTO day — to really relax.
It's all well-deserved and we look forward to more celebrations together, as we grow! Want to join us?
