The Warm Springs Compensation and Benefits Fair is coming up on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 2-3.

The fair is for all employees of the Confederated Tribes of The Warm Springs, including all enterprises.

The Comp and Benefits Fair will be from 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. both days, at the Community Center Social Hall.

There are Comp and Benefits changes coming for 2015, so don’t miss out on the fair, said Elizabeth Asashi Sato, director Human Resources.

“A representative from each of our benefit vendors will be attending the meeting, to give presentations as well as answer any questions you may have,” Elizabeth said.

Each of the vendors will have a table set up for one-on-one discussions and handouts.

Snacks and beverages will be provided.

The overview

What changes are coming to the Confederated Tribes’ full-time employee health benefits plan?

You will find out at the fair.

There will be about a dozen vendors, providing important information.

What is a 401K? How do I access my retirement savings if I have an emergency?

What is a Flexible Spending Account?

Will I have to turn in those receipts with the new vendor?

These questions and more will be addressed at the fair.

“The Human Resources Department is here to help all employees learn about your benefits working for the Confederated Tribes,” Elizabeth said.

The fair will be a chance for employees to meet the Human Resources staff: Raylene, Kaitlyn, Lois, Carroll, Melinda, Elizabeth, Amelia, Greta, Nancy and Frank.

They will be eagerly awaiting your participation in this year’s Comp and Benefits Fair.

Examples of other questions that will be answered:

What is the difference between managed care and enrolled tribal benefits?

Who can I include from my family in my medical and dental benefits? What about retirement or your life insurance?

Human Resources has requested that managers give their staff 90 minutes sometime during the two day event, in order to attend the fair.

There will be employee passports that vendor will stamp as employees visit each of the stations.
Please let Human Resources know immediately if you need any special accommodation. You can reach them at 541-553-3328.
