The City of Newport News recognized Zel Technologies for their superb involvement with the City's Summer Training and Enrichment Program (STEP). This program provides employment opportunities for at-risk young people from the city's Southeast Community, and surrounding area. This 10-week program serves people between ages 16 and 24, exposing them to different career options and offer enrichment, as well as a resume-builder. Zel Technologies was also targeted for an interview with the CEO highlighting the importance of exposing young people to a corporate setting, who otherwise would not have an opportunity to do so at this stage of their journey. Why is it important - and in fact, imperative - for businesses and their owners to give back to their communities: It gives ZelTech a chance to connect with- and impact - the community. No business exists in a vacuum We're all located in and surrounded by communities, and all of them could use a little extra support.. Being a powerful community presence will tell the people in the community a great deal about the investment and character of - and will likely even mean a business boost.

Corporate Benefits Update
To All ZelTech Employees,
My thanks to those who responded to our corporate benefits survey recently. I read your responses with interest, and they will be foremost in our minds as we look to improve our benefits packages for the coming calendar year.
Health insurance plans and options are clearly the major priority for most employees and their families. I am aware that a number of you are dissatisfied with United Health Care (UHC) coverage and pharmacy benefits. If you let HR know of your specific issues and concerns, we will work with our UHC representative to try to get you a satisfactory resolution. We have been successful in some instances and we have lost a few battles, but we will do whatever we can to assist. Looking toward the future, we will aggressively look at all options available to us to provide you the best possible medical insurance coverage and choices at reasonable prices in 2017 and beyond.
We plan to make improvements in other areas, including more flexible working arrangements, holidays and leave adjustments, education assistance and fitness programs. More details will be forthcoming in these areas.
HR is working to expand its communications with you on all benefits issues. They will continue to post information on the Portal, Employee Benefits site, Employee Navigator website. Employee Navigator, UHC, and 401(k) (Fidelity) have apps that can be downloaded to your mobile devices. We will also send out emails as appropriate. Stay tuned for more details on an enhanced HR Outreach Program over the next few months, which is designed the make us more aware of your priorities and concerns and to keep you apprised of the options available to us and the criteria we will use to make our benefits choices. We welcome your feedback and suggestions!
I intend to personally play a more active role in this dialog and I will reach out to you again as we move forward. You are the heart and soul of ZelTech, and we are committed to providing you and your families the best benefits possible.
