It’s been a while since our last blog – too long! Blog #8 was released near the peak of COVID-19, and it focused on changes to the coverage, delivery and utilization of group benefits. While we are still a long way from a post COVID-19 world we should all be thankful and proud as we pass another Canada Day, that our communities and provinces are in a much better place than in mid-April 2020.
This early summer issue includes an update on our new summer webinar series and FREE Friday Benefits Connexion Podcasts, as well as links to some In the News items we found interesting. Our new offerings, website, webinar and software upgrades will position us well for growth in the future as we continue to work to deliver meaningful content to you through summer 2020 and into the fall.
