The Top 10 Ways to Celebrate National Employee Benefits Day

  1. Take a selfie with your favorite benefit form (let’s hear it for Form 5500!) and post to Twitter using #NEBD.
  2. Create sock puppets immortalizing personnel from key enforcement agencies.  meme-flag-no-text
  3. Read a guilty pleasure: 50 Shades of Grey: ACA Interpretation.
  4. Acknowledge Throwback Thursday by kicking off your next team meeting with, “Sorry to hear about that fungal infection, Nancy. That sounds nasty!” #TBT (before HIPAA)
  5. Reach the younger participants by having your teenagers “translate” your next benefit communication: “OMG, the HC plan is totes magotes.”
  6. Things not working out with a vendor? Have Taylor Swift write you a break-up song.
  7. Give back to your community by reading section Section 510 of ERISA at the next open mic event. After the stunned silence, smile and say, “You’re welcome.”
  8. Bring a Matthew McConaughey vibe to work and say to no one in particular, in a slow Texan drawl, “I’ve been working in benefits since before benefits were cool. I don’t do it to make a statement. I just like it.”Matthew
  9. Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
    if you say it loud enough, you’ll always sound precocious:
  10. Put a bumper sticker that says “401.k” on your car so everyone knows you run your DC plan.

    Here at the International Foundation we are celebrating the day by completing well-being bucket list goals! Staff members are setting a personal goal for each of the five areas of wellness: body, mind, wallet, community and work. The goals will be submitted into our official Well-Being Bucket and then handed back to staff next year on Benefits Day. We’re also kicking off our 2015 walking program and having an all staff luncheon!
