In 2009, JCPenny introduced JCPenneyPowerLine.com with the intention of facilitating online access to employees from home or wherever they might be. As an employee you are given access to all your employment related information such as pay stubs, work schedule, taxes, employee benefits, 401(k), leaves and much more. The move was imperative to ensure high standards of communication while maintaining an employee base of more than 100,000 across America.
What JCPenneyPowerLine Offers to its Employees?
It goes without saying that Aon Hewitt runs and manages JCPenneyPowerLine.com and in a press statement, their Vice President of Benefits had said that besides presenting general employee benefits, the website can “provide links directly to the Sedgwick system so participants can get their case status (…), links in the medical space to the carrier website, where they complete their personal health assessment and (…) do a warm transfer to a tier 2 call center advocate who will serve as a guide, walking them through their benefits.”
In other words, JCPenneyPowerLine.com offer information on: your 401(k) loans, check balances; healthcare and health related breaks; application for retirement and its benefits; you can also report life crisis and get support from your 401(k) plan through your “tier 2” services.
