Find solutions. Transform your business. Elevate your career.
The benefits industry is always transforming, especially with governmental policies changing and expectations from employees evolving. With our membership networks, you don’t have to problem-solve on your own as benefits leaders share insights, lessons learned, successful strategies, and innovations.
Our peer networks are comprised of and serve the senior leadership of successful companies, in all verticals and industries across the nation.
As a member, we give you a safe space to discuss the challenges that are plaguing you. You have the opportunity to bring issues to your peers, many of whom have implemented (or chosen not to implement) strategies that you’re currently evaluating. This means you’ll get candid insights on best practices and pitfalls for issues you’re facing from people who have been there before, the kind of information that you won’t find by scouring the internet.
“Most of the folks that have been in the breakout sessions with me have the same level of experience that I do, so we have all seen a lot of the same things but it’s nice to get that cross industry perspective and hear how things are being handled by one group vs. another. You can take some nuggets of it back and apply it in your own organization. One solution isn’t gong to work for everybody but there may be something somebody mentions that will trigger an idea, something you can look at and say, “this might work for us.” —Beth Haight, Vice President, Benefits, LPL Financial
As members, senior executives have a powerful resource at their disposal: the combined knowledge and experience of peers. Insights gained from leading executives and innovators in your space can be transformational.
Topics discussed by peer groups are suggested by members themselves, addressing the most pressing issues currently facing benefits executives.
Our members have recently collaborated on the below questions, and other similar issues that need to be addressed across all industries in the benefits field.
Creating a wellness culture not only leads to healthy and more productive employees, it also keeps healthcare costs in check. Recent studies show that employees are less engaged at work than ever before. Benefits professionals can wield wellness programs to combat disengagement, along with burnout, decreased satisfaction, and negative feelings towards their employer. Also, healthcare costs are skyrocketing and are easily one of the biggest drains on company resources. A well thought out wellness program, paired with high enrollment rates, is one of the most effective tools to keep costs down.
Knowledge is essential when it comes to wellness initiatives. Knowing the needs of your employee population and what will motivate them to actually enroll and engage with wellness initiatives is necessary. When it comes to both designing an effective healthcare package and promoting wellness, you need information as well as effective initiatives. Our benefits network frequently shares best practices on information gathering and creative ways to increase enrollment in their wellness programs, as well as how to gain interdepartmental buy-in for benefit-led healthcare and wellness initiatives and how to meet key metrics and KPIs.
