Guest Editor Welcome

Hello and welcome to the start of a new year!

For many a new year represents a clean slate, while others choose to reflect and resolve. For me, a new year represents new beginnings. This issue is a prime example of a new beginning as I fill-in as Guest Editor for this quarter’s HR Today.

We have a lot of information to share in this issue. It’s a new beginning as we welcome Tom McMahon as our Director of Talent Acquisition. We’ll reflect on the importance of protecting our personal information and resolve to reduce our risk of identity theft. Anthem participants have a clean slate at the doctor’s office as they update their healthcare information using their new 2017 Anthem ID cards.

What does the New Year mean to you?

Wishing you all the best in the year ahead,

Robin Reynolds
Sr. Benefits Specialist, Group Insurance
