Navigating the Penn Tuition Benefit System for Yourself or Your Family

Join Penn’s Human Resources Tuition Benefit Manager, to learn more about the tuition benefit program and how you can use the benefit for yourself at Penn, or how the tuition benefit can support your dependents or spouse in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree. At this session, you will learn more about coverage, how to request the benefit using the online tuition management system and tax implications if you are using the benefit for a graduate program. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about the tuition benefit and may get answers to questions you didn’t know you have. Whether you are using the benefit now for yourself or your dependents, or are planning to use it in the future, this session will provide a good overview of the tuition benefit and policies.

Chair Yoga

Plenty of people turn to yoga for exercise, but striking a pose isn’t for everyone. If you’ve been tempted to try it but don’t know where to start, it’s time to try chair yoga. Chair yoga is a more moderate form of yoga that’s done while sitting in a chair or using a chair for support. You get the same benefits of a regular yoga workout (like increased strength, flexibility and balance) but don’t have to master complex poses. Chair yoga can even better your breathing and teach you how to relax your mind and improve your wellbeing. Ready to give it a try? Join us for a free Chair Yoga workshop. And don’t worry about your experience or flexibility—chair yoga can be modified for all levels! This workshop will be led by Sergeant John Wylie, Department of Public Safety at Penn.

HR L&E Presents Brown Bag Matinee: Building a Winning Team

Join us to experience Jon Gordon, author of the best selling book The Energy Bus, speaking to an audience at Stanford University.
Through this brown bag matinee, you will learn strategies for successfully uniting teams behind a compelling vision of success. We all know that fear and uncertainty in the workplace hurt the morale of teams and lead to pessimism, poor focus and subpar performance. In this video, you will see how sharing a unifying vision rallies a team, and how positivity, celebrating success and addressing negativity are critical to a team’s success. Jon places the focus on creating inspired, committed relationships in order to deliver top team performance.
