5 Fool-Proof Ways to Make the Most of Your Summer

Warm weather, pool days and barbecues aren’t the only things to get excited about this season. At Rockwell Automation, you have benefits and programs to support you wherever life takes you. Read on to learn five ways to maximize your summer.

1.    Plan a budget-friendly vacation using your employee discounts

If you need a getaway this summer that won’t break the bank, the employee discount program offers a wide variety of travel savings. You can save on flights, hotels, theme park tickets and more. Check out what’s available by logging in to EPOCH, the Rockwell Automation intranet.

Let storytellers and celebrities guide you through virtual tours of ancient temples, the Irish landscape, majestic woodlands or the breathtaking sunsets of Iceland. It’s all available on the Calm mobile app, available at no cost to you. Get started today.

2.    Use less vacation time with Company holidays

Want to get away but need to save up your time off? Use Rockwell Automation holidays to enjoy weekend adventures for Independence Day (two days) and Labor Day (one day) this summer. You can view all Company holidays for 2021 here.

3.    Sign your kids up for camp with tax-free FSA dollars

If you currently contribute to a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) through Rockwell Automation, remember that you can use those savings to pay for summer day camps for your kids. You’ll pay for camp costs out of pocket and then submit a claim for reimbursement on the Your BenefitsTM website.

4.    Get the child care you need through Bright Horizons®

If you need a space for your child to thrive this summer, Bright Horizons® has your back. It costs you nothing to register on their website, and when you log in, you can:

  • Find experienced nannies
  • Enroll your child in a Bright Horizons® center (and get bumped up the waiting list*)
  • Get discounts on tuition at participating partner child care centers
  • Schedule back-up care when your regular arrangements aren’t available

*Available at select centers

5.    Walk, bike or hike—and earn Take Action incentives along the way

Getting outdoors this season can be good for your body and your wallet. Through the Health Management program, you can earn up to $500 toward your 2022 Rockwell Automation medical premiums when you log your steps and other physical activities. From casual walks to 10Ks and summer softball leagues, there are multiple opportunities to earn your Take Action incentives.

Reminder: COVID-19 vaccines can earn you a $200 incentive!
