ONLINE ORIENTATION - for Employees
An online orientation is available for your employees to use if your agency/entity human resources office has chosen to utilize. Be aware this is not intended to replace the function of HR. Any employee who is provided the training link and agency key, is responsible for completing and obtaining the new hire checklist at the end. The checklist must be provided to HR and forwarded to EGI before any benefit enrollment will be honored. If you have questions regarding the online training, please contact Karyn Williams at 307-777-6714 or email email@example.com
Benefits Training for Human Resource personnel is available from EGI quarterly. The training presentation is developed from the contents of the Benefit Specialist Handbook.
