Employer Monthly - August Issue

August 27, 2019
In this issue you will find information on how you can help us evolve e-access, as well as dates for our upcoming workshops and webinars.

e-access Revamp Workshop

After receiving a lot feedback from our administrators across Ontario, we are listening to your concerns and e-access has become a focus for us at OMERS. It’s time to make a change but we can’t do it without you! To better understand your wants and needs, OMERS is asking for your input on how we can evolve the employer platform to work better for you. If you’re interested in participating in a half-day e-access feedback workshop, please follow the link below. Locations and dates will be determined based on interest.

Participate in the e-access Revamp Workshop


Please respond by September 13, so that we can begin this adventure together as soon as possible!

Help us shape the OMERS member experience!

OMERS values the opinion of members – and as part of our ongoing efforts to better understand members’ perspective about OMERS on areas of strengths, issues, and concerns, we will be launching a Member Engagement Survey. The more we know about their perception and experience, the more we will be able to improve their experience with OMERS.

Members can participate online (via link or QR code) or by phone, from September 30th – October 25th, 2019. Survey findings will be used to continually shape the OMERS member experience.
Thank you in advance for helping us shape the OMERS experience. Should you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to reach out to Employer Services (1-833-884-0389). We are always more than happy to connect with you.
