Benefit information sessions

Benefit information sessions for new staff are generally held twice a month in the Human Resources Department, usually on the first and second Tuesday of each month.

These sessions cover the following topics which are of interest to new staff:

  • Structure of the Cost of Employment (CoE) package
  • Retirement benefits
  • Healthcare benefits and options
  • Employee Assistance Programme

New staff are encouraged to attend a session prior to or as near as possible after their start date at UCT so that they can make informed decisions with regard to the benefits listed above.

The information sessions are held in the Bremner Building from 10h00 to 12h00. Please inform the Appointments Office of which day you are able to attend. The dates of the sessions are as follows:

3 or 10 January 2017
7 or 14 February 2017
7 or 14 March 2017
4 or 11 April 2017
2 or 9 May 2017
6 or 13 June 2017
4 or 11 July 2017
1 or 8 August 2017
5 or 12 September 2017
3 or 10 October 2017
7 or 14 November 2017
5 or 12 December 2017

If you are unable to attend either of the sessions in the month you take up the appointment, please liaise with the Appointments Office about setting up one-on-one sessions with our Benefit Specialists. It would be appreciated, however, if every effort could be made to attend one of the general sessions.
