Weight Watchers rolled out the new Momentum program for 2009, designed to help you modify the plan so that it works for you!
We have had a wonderfully successful initial 17-week series here at Ithaca College. One of our members has achieved Lifetime status; a couple others are close to their individual goals. Our group as a whole has dropped a total of 547.4 pounds -- and many members are keeping them off! Join us to find out how!
The summer hours program will begin Friday, May 22, 2009, and continue through August 7, 2009. During this period, full-time employees will work two fewer hours (37-1/2 hours reduced to 35-1/2, 40 hours reduced to 38 hours) and receive their usual compensation.
Ithaca College's official business hours will end at 3:00 p.m. on Fridays instead of 5:00 p.m.; thus giving many of our employees a chance to get a head start on the summer weekends. This year there will be 12 Fridays on which the official hours will be reduced by two hours.
Great news for IC employees and their families! The Office of Human Resources is partnering with Genworth Life Insurance Company to offer a new group long-term care insurance plan to benefits-eligible employees. Through this offering, you will have the opportunity to enroll in a comprehensive group long-term care insurance program that offers a range of coverage options that are affordable and flexible.
Last fall, President Tom Rochon identified a challenge for all supervisors and staff members to sit down together and have a goal-setting conversation by October 31, 2008. You met that challenge! Conversations were held, goals were set, and over 300 employees attended the workshop, "On Your Mark, Get Set … Set Your Goals!"
Part two of our challenge is to make these conversations a habit, and to assess goal progress and performance by May 31, 2009.
