Developing New Ways to Serve Our Participants
Our priority during this uncertain time is maintaining the health and safety of our employees, participants and employers while still providing the services and tools you need. To be able to achieve those goals, Ohio DC has created some new education opportunities for participants that you might want to share via newsletters or intranet postings. To help participants stay in touch with our staff and to answer their important questions, we have developed a map with links to each of our Local Account Executives. The links provide participants with a way to sign up for phone appointments. They can access the map and links to schedule appointments here .
