Chats with Jack: 2018

Jack Heuer, Ed.D., Vice President of Human Resources, along with PPSA, is continuing a program for monthly-paid employees. Chats with Jack, a small group discussions platform, began late March 2016.

Three to four staff members are invited to meet with the Vice President and a PPSA Tri-Chair to further lines of communication and foster open dialogue. The program was piloted in late fall 2015 and early 2016. Staff feedback was very positive and several items raised had immediate attention.

If you would like to register for the chance to participate in this exciting program,
contact PPSA at ppsa@lists.upenn.edu.
Participants are chosen randomly each month. For further information,
contact PPSA at ppsa@lists.upenn.edu.

Bike Commuter Expense Reimbursement Program

The Penn Bike Commuter Expense Reimbursement Program offers bicycle commuting expenses to qualified faculty and staff for any out-of-pocket eligible expenses up to $240 annually. Unlike a flexible spending account, reimbursement comes directly from the University and is considered taxable income by the Internal Revenue Service.

Expense categories that the University will reimburse are bike purchases; maintenance, improvements, and bike accessories; parking and commercial storage costs; and safety gear. Purchases such as membership and program fees along with clothing and apparel are not considered allowable expenses.

Funding for this program is provided by the Division of Business Services as part of the University’s Climate Action Plan.

Details, including FAQs, can be found on the Business Services website at:
