Welcome to the Virtual Benefits Fair 2021!

October 2021
Presented by the Employee Benefits team in University Human Resources

Welcome to the 2021 OSU Virtual Benefits Fair.  Please take time to look at the virtual booth content of each vendor to learn more about the comprehensive benefit options for OSU employees. We are pleased to offer this format this year to allow employees to have access to extensive information and time to examine all their options before completing open enrollment. Employees can download resources, watch videos, chat with vendors and check out the webinar options. Many of the vendors are also offering door prize drawings. Explore their virtual booths by clicking on the plus signs to find out information about the vendor’s benefits.   

During the month of October, 2021 many of the Benefit Fair Vendors will be offering live webinars and a chance to ask questions with virtual office hours. Some of the webinars require registration and some do not. The format will be first come, first in the zoom room. If vendors are allowing recordings, we will post the recorded links the following week for employees that were unable to attend or if the spots for that webinar were full. We hope you enjoy this new way of presenting benefit information. This content will be available until October 31, 2021 to allow OSU employees ample time to explore the virtual booths.

Everyone who attends the virtual benefits fair and completes a brief survey will be entered in a door prize drawing for items from the OSU bookstore. This virtual drawing will take place the first week in November. If you are a winner the OSU benefits team will reach out to you to find out the best way to get your prize to you.
