In recognition of national mentoring month, we decided to celebrate some of our fantastic mentors who have participated in our Mentor@Transdev program.

Today is your last day to update your benefits for 2023. You have until 11:59pm Central. It’s important to note – if you choose not to enroll, your benefits will default to your 2022 selection. However, should you want payroll deductions for any FSA or HSA accounts (if eligible), you MUST go through the process and re-enroll.
Metro Magazine recently featured an article by our Transdev U.S. CEO, Laura Hendricks. In it, Laura discusses how Transdev, across our international network, has worked with and supported many clients around the world on their sustainability journeys. The article also touches on the lessons learned, best practices and expertise we’ve collected over the years.
In addition to signing up for your benefits, open enrollment also is a great time for you to review and update the key information that you have entered in both the Transdev Benefits Portal and our ADP portal.
During Open Enrollment, between November 2 and November 18, 2022, is your only chance to update your benefits – don’t miss this chance. Unless you have a qualifying event during 2023, like a marriage, birth/adoption of a child or a divorce (as examples), the benefits you choose now will apply for all of next year (January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023).
Open enrollment is a great time to review your current benefits, analyze your existing expenses, look ahead to your potential 2023 medical expenses and evaluate your plan options. Check your mail at home for the latest information. It is open from November 2–18, 2022.
National Mentoring Day was launched to celebrate the benefits of mentoring and takes place on October 27th each year.
