As many of you know, over the past month or so the Human Resource Department has been facilitating employee meetings with the provider of our Employee Family Assistance Plan (EFAP) to provide information on the myriad of services available to Gabriel Dumont Institute employees under the plan. To date, meetings have been held in our Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon offices, and the feedback has been very positive. However, due to the busy holiday season and unusually cold weather in early January, attendance at some of the meetings was not as hoped. A meeting for employees in the North is being planned for the coming months.
Further, in order to spread the information more broadly, I have previously forwarded valuable pieces of information from Shepell, the provider of the EFAP, via email distributed to all staff. Some of the information has also appeared in the GDI Communicator articles.
I encourage employees to go to Shepell’s site, www.workhealthlife.com to view the resources that are available to the Institute staff and to see the options and services that are available to them and their families under the EFAP. I will be distributing additional information regarding the services available as I receive them via email and in future Communicator articles.
