Benefit Advisory Committee
The purpose of the Benefits Advisory Committee is two-fold: 1) dissemination of information back to other groups; and 2) the generation of "ideas" and review of possible options for benefits changes that impact the total rewards program for faculty and staff. This is not a decision making committee, but it does influence the benefits that are made available to Willamette faculty and staff and serves as a focus group for considerations.
The Benefit Advisory Committee is often the first group of people to see presentations from new prospective benefit vendors. A secondary focus, historically, has been on our Wellness programs. As a result, this committee has undoubtedly had a positive influence on Willamette's benefit programs and offerings to faculty and staff over the years.
If you think you might be interested in serving on the committee in the future, don't hesitate to contact us in Human Resources to discuss the nature of the commitment and potential meeting schedules.
