Next #HBLChat to explore importance of employee benefits, communication
As we prepare for an exciting Health & Benefits Leadership Conference this April in Las Vegas, we want to open the dialogue between speakers and attendees through our monthly twitter chats.
We had a successful conversation with the American Benefits Council on topics ranging from how the SECURE Act and repeal of the Cadillac tax will impact HR to speculations on how the election could change the employee benefits playing field.
And while policy can change the way employers approach their employee benefits strategies, it’s imperative employees are engaging and making better informed decisions during open enrollment.
But benefits communication must be more than simply a box to check off in HR’s open enrollment strategy. It’s a year-long dialogue that must be had. So, we invite you to join us for our next Twitter chat at noon Feb. 26 with Jennifer Benz, senior vice president and communication leader of employee benefits at HR consulting firm Segal Benz.
Our chat will be in advance of Benz’s presentation at the Health & Benefits Leadership Conference, where she will discuss what’s working well today to engage employees and drive action, as well as what’s to come—and how to plan now so you can stay ahead of the curve.
Follow along in the conversation with us on Twitter using the hashtag #HBLChat and share your knowledge and insights with the benefits and HR community.
In addition to Benz, other main-stage events during the conference will include award-winning journalist and health and wellness advocate Joan Lunden, headlining the conference’s keynote on the importance of health and wellness and caregiving support in the workplace; ABC President Jim Klein’s keynote addressing what’s at stake for employer plan sponsors and benefits professionals in the run-up to the election and in the resulting political landscape; as well as a panel on how part-time and gig workers are influencing employers’ benefits packages.
The conference will feature eight new and reimagined tracks—all aimed at addressing some of the biggest challenges facing HR and benefits leaders. They are:
- Hot benefits to attract and retain talent
- Rethinking healthcare in changing times
- Keeping employees engaged
- Helping employees boost financial health
- Improving employees’ overall wellbeing
- Being a better benefits leader
- Staying compliant
- Tech solutions that work
