The Power of Employee Benefits

March 17th

8:00am - 10:00am


This program has been pre-approved for 1.5 Professional Development Credits (PDCs) by the Society for Human Resource Management and 1.5 HR General credits by the HR Certification Institute

COVID has forced every company to reassess what they do and how they do it—and as of March 2020, employee benefits became the fulcrum of an organization.  The right employee benefit program has the power to build and maintain culture—and culture is a key determinant of attracting and retaining elite talent.  Of the traditional and emerging employee benefits, health insurance remains the most valuable and most expensive.   What can be done to bend the trend with a company’s health insurance program?  The good news is that things are changing.  Learn about the various strategies and employee benefit advisor movements that promise the coming change.  There will be a day the employer is in control of their healthcare spend because, “if you pay, you should have a say”.

By the end of this session, participants will:

Learn (more) about traditional and emerging employee benefit trends that build and maintain a company’s culture, which attracts and retains elite talent.

Learn (more) about specific strategies that can be used to control your company’s healthcare spend.

Learn (more) about employee benefit advisor movements around the country that provide a blueprint for “the plan that works”, and are moving employers from renters to owners of their health insurance plans.
