Dear Dudek & Bock Team,
The Board is currently interviewing candidates to take Jim’s place as President of Dudek & Bock. Jim’s last official day will be September 15, but he will be working remotely for the next two weeks. In Jim’s absence, and until a successor is selected, John Sieracki will be serving as acting President. I know that you will give him your full support.

Please be on time to your session. We have divided the training into groups for English, Spanish, Polish and Vietnamese, so it will be best if you attend the session to which you are assigned.

Next week we will begin Open Enrollment for medical, dental, vision insurance, etc. for 2023. UHC increased the rates of medical insurance by 7%. However, Dudek & Bock is paying for the entire increase. The rates will remain the same for employees.
In addition to the UHC HMO and UHC PPO, we are offering one additional plan. This is a cheaper PPO based on the Advocate health care system. If you already have an Advocate doctor, you might want to consider this plan.
Benefit books will be distributed next week, but there is no change other than the additional PPO offered.
