It won’t be long before we gather for the fourth annual Human Resource Executive Health & Benefits Leadership Conference. It was an absolute honor to help launch this conference and serve as its program chair for the first three years. As a program advisor this year, I’m again impressed with the speakers and content we’ll cover.

I can promise you’ll leave this conference with a boatload of valuable insights, but here are three key reasons not to miss out:
Should employers stay at “arm’s length” and place more responsibility on individual employees to manage their health and finances? Or should they provide employees and their families with even more support, guidance and resources? I’m delighted to be moderating the panel session “Consumerism vs. Paternalism,” with Patrick Aylward from American Express, Bob Ihrie from Lowe’s, Jennifer Weinstein from McKesson and Brian J. Marcotte from the National Business Group on Health.
We’ll discuss the evolution of employers’ roles in areas such as healthcare, financial security and work/life balance, and what those relationships will look like in the coming years.
Financial security is a top priority for employers this year. It is clear that helping employees get out of debt, save more, better understand investing and form a solid plan for their financial futures has tangible results on productivity and engagement. Less clear are ways to make those things happen. I’m delighted to be presenting the financial wellness framework we created in collaboration with State Street Global Advisors. We’ll walk through our 6-step approach to bring financial wellness programs to life, and the actionable tips that will get employers the results they’ve been hoping for.
The program will also cover:
1.Reaching the “unreachables”—front-line employees who have limited access to technology.
2.The latest reports on the current state of time-off policies.
3.Engaging C-suite executives in wellness programs and the kind of impact executive buy-in has on the health and well-being of its workforce.
4.Launching a consumerism strategy that offers employees incentives to use voluntary benefits.
In times of change, innovation is key. You won’t want to miss the Ideas and Innovators session, after which you may become an early adopter of some of the next “big ideas” from industry experts. This is one of the top-rated sessions every year.
