NOTES FROM THE HUMAN RESOURCES DIVISION


  • Dental claims for family members ... The current Blue Cross dental claim form does not have a section to complete when you submit a claim for your dependents. Blue Cross are in the process of redesigning their dental claim form to include information about your dependents.

    However, until the new form is approved, please complete the dependent portion on the Extended Health Claim form when you initially submit a dental claim for your dependents. This will ensure that Blue Cross has the information on file for your dependents and will avoid any delays in your reimbursements.

    If you require an Extended Health Claim form, please contact Janet Horbay at 966-6273 for this form.


  • HRD announces that Eleanor Wright has left the Division. She will be pursuing other interests in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Good luck, Eleanor!


  • All offices will be closed to observe Good Friday on April 2. Regular office hours will resume on Monday, April 5.

  • Here are some tips on How to Deal with Conflict. To handle conflict among your team members:

    - Ask those who disagree to paraphrase one another's comments. This may help them learn if they really understand one another.

    - Work out a compromise to find a solution.

    - Ask each member of the group to list what the "other side" should do, exchange lists, and select a compromise all are willing to accept.

    - Have the sides write 10 questions for their opponents. The answers may lead to a compromise.

    - Convince team members that they sometimes may have to admit they are wrong. Help them to save face by convincing them that changing a position may show strength.

    - Respect the experts on the team. Give their opinions more weight when the conflict involves their expertise, but don't rule out conflicting opinions.
