HR Updates: Summer 2020
The latest updates from Human Resources. Plus, financial planning resources from TIAA.
The COVID-19 crisis has created challenging situations for our community. We wanted to reiterate various options available to Pace employees as we navigate this uncertain time.
TIAA Retirement Planning and Resources
TIAA will be conducting Virtual Counseling Meetings via Adobe Connect. Register for one of the sessions.
TIAA has also developed a single webpage to consolidate the market volatility and coronavirus details: TIAA Guiding you through turbulent times. The webinars are open to all Pace University employees and are posted in the Live Webinar Lounge.
Employee Assistance Program

It provides confidential counseling to assist in solving personal, family and work-related problems as well as a resource to go to when you don't know where to go for help. Please call the EAP toll-free number at (877) 622-4327.
Cigna EAP Webcasts
Join a Cigna EAP wellness webcast, including webinars on Coronavirus Fears and Concerns
While feelings of anxiety are normal, they can make day-to-day life more difficult. Cigna EAP is offering several on-demand webcasts that address the impact of these challenges. These one-hour webcasts offer strategies for managing stressful thoughts and emotions. You can explore the idea of resilience and how to build yours up. Experience the practice of mindfulness, a way of gently training your mind for greater calm. And gain practical tips for being successful in a work at home environment.
When you log into the Wellness Webcast portal, you can choose to attend one of these seminars, register for upcoming seminars, or attend other on-demand seminars.
Here’s your shot to help keep Pace safe. The health and safety of the Pace Community is our top priority, and getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is a key part. Check back frequently as we announce vaccine availability for our community.
Vaccine Availability for Pace
Pace professors are going big this month when it comes to media mentions; talking COVID-19 recovery, the Biden administration, and much more.
