    Strategic Benefit Strategies That Work 

    Strategic benefits planning:  Achieving your organization's key goals with Patrick Reid of Associated Benefits and Risk Consulting.  

    Session Description: 

    Health benefits impact an organization’s bottom line in many ways, including high-dollar premiums, talent acquisition and retention, and even workforce productivity.  However, when asked if they have a strategic benefits plan, many HR and benefit professionals say “Yes, but…”.  This response usually means they don’t have the strategy written down, or they don’t follow a clearly defined process.  In this seminar, we will discuss how a documented, clearly defined process is essential for an effective strategic benefits plan.  We’ll also explore how a high-performing benefits program ties strategy directly to your organization’s overall budget and long-term goals.

    Key areas of focus at this seminar will include:

    1. Identifying attainable outcomes and putting them in an organized, written strategy
    2. Taking actionable steps to achieve those desired outcomes
    3. Measuring results and tying them back to the bottom line (VOI versus ROI: Value of Investment).

    Attendees are invited to participate in an interactive and insightful conversation.
