Catch the Wave! Dive into New Employer Strategies for 2020

How are you getting ready for 2020? Have you found a strategy that lowers costs for high-cost conditions – but can also improve outcomes?  Do you suffer from wellness program fatigue and need inspiration to try something different?  What about telehealth, ACOs, urgent care and convenience clinics – do you have a plan that prevents your employees from getting caught in a tangled web of healthcare options?

New thinking on HDHPs indicates they may not be all they’re cracked up to be.  And creating a benefits strategy that caters to millennials can backfire when it comes to retaining other high-performing talent.  

These are just some of the topics we’ll cover at our 8th Annual Conference.

The year 2020 is coming fast.  Catch the wave and avoid a wipeout – our experts will show you how!

  • Do a 360 on High Cost Conditions                                                          
  • Drop In on a Wellness Wave that Works

Think Global, Act Glocal! Designing a Global Benefits Strategy

Navigating differences in access and how services are provided - healthcare, dependent care, financial benefits, vacations and family friendly benefits -- makes global benefit design complex.  What does success look like when it comes to global benefit strategies?

We’ll address:

  • Making sure employees have access to the essentials
  • Providing family-friendly benefits that take into account employee needs, global corporate policies and local norms
  • Developing an approach to mental health using examples of global programs that work
