Benefits and Payroll Webinar

In addition to your compensation, GW offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes health care coverage, paid vacation and sick leave, a voluntary retirement program with a university-funded four percent core and up to six percent matching contribution (up to IRS limits), education benefits, life insurance, special discounts and various work-life benefits.

To help you understand the scope of your benefits and payroll procedures, we strongly encourage you to attend the Benefits and Payroll Webinar for New Employees. During the 90-minute webinar, you will receive a thorough overview of your benefits and pay, and have the opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A session.
