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, except January 2019 when it will be held on the second and third Tuesday.

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 12h30. Please inform the Appointments Office of which day you are able to attend. The dates of the sessions are as follows:

6 or 13 November 2018
4 or 11 December 2018

8 or 15 January 2019
5 or 12 February 2019
5 or 12 March 2019
2 or 9 April 2019
7 or 14 May 2019
4 or 11 June 2019
2 or 9 July 2019
6 or 13 August 2019
3 or 10 September 2019
1 or 8 October 2019
5 or 12 November 2019
3 or 10 December 2019

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.
