Protected: Health Insurance Renewal Rates

Posted by on August 23, 2016 in Thermo Tidbits | Enter your password to view comments.

Health Insurance You may or may not remember that in October of last year, I explained how moving our renewal date from Dec 1 to Oct 1 allowed us to keep our current “grandfathered” health plan until 2017. (you can re-read the old Thermo-Tidbits post)  Despite the average 13% increase in premiums last year, keeping our current plan was still the best option over an ACA (Affordable Care Act) compliant plan. We are now looking at the renewal rates for the final year of our “grandfathered” plan. They came in with an average 6% increase in premium.  Some of...

Protected: 1st Qtr Incentive Checks, Backlog, and Party Reminder!

Posted by on April 26, 2016 in Thermo Tidbits | Enter your password to view comments.

Well folks, we have exciting news to “share”!  Between taxes,  year end bonuses and a variety of other expenses we endure at the beginning and end of every year,  1st quarter incentive checks can sometimes be lackluster. But, not only were we able to pay out substantial bonuses in March, we’re immediately following those up, for those eligible, with sizeable first quarter incentive checks! Watch for them to be included on your May 3 paychecks.  Steve continues to reward his employees for their hard work by sharing in the profitability of the company.  Let’s keep this trend rolling….hard work...

Protected: Happy New Year!!

Welcome to 2016! It’s already the end of January but still early enough in the year to get away with saying that! 2015 proved to be a busy year for us. Our workload was steady…and sometimes kept us busier than steady 🙂 But we seem to go through those streaks every year. And thank goodness for that, because we all know the alternative… So it’s the time of year when your foreman will make some time to sit down with each of you and let you know how you are doing…what your strengths and weaknesses are…and what expectations he...

Protected: Health Insurance Renewal

Posted by on October 26, 2015 in Thermo Tidbits | Enter your password to view comments.

Our health insurance renewal date is 12/1 and the new rates don’t look pretty. We are looking at a 13% increase! After a sit down with our agent and discussing our options, it was determined that we don’t really have any! If we keep our current plan, with the 13% increase, but change our renewal date to Oct 1, we can be grandfathered from having to comply with the ACA (Affordable Care Act) until Oct 1, 2017. We cannot make any changes to the coverage in our current plan or even consider a different plan – other than ACA....

Steve would like to get a photo ID badge for every employee to have on hand for those jobs that require them. If we are proactive about supplying these now, we won’t be scrambling to provide them at the last minute when needed. Some of you have already sent your pictures to me and will receive your ID’s shortly. For those who haven’t, please either take a selfie or have someone take a picture (head shot) and send it to me at patti@thermomail.com.  If you could be wearing your Thermo-tshirts or hoodies, that would be awesome:) The sooner you...
