E2E Benefits

E2E 2020

March 18, 2020

It is with a heavy heart to share that we have decided to postpone our Employer 2 Employer (E2E) event scheduled for May 6, 2020.

This event has a long history with us and has become an anticipated event for many.  However, given the fluid nature of our nations battle with COVID-19, we felt it best to postpone it for now. We will continue to monitor the situation and share information pertinent to the services we provide with our customers, as available.

Be well … STAY WELL!

Bill Shock, Executive Vice President

The Unland Companies
