    Employee Benefits 101 for Freelancers and Entrepreneurs

    in Finance

    The last thing on the minds of freelancers and entrepreneurs is making certain they planned for employee benefits for themselves and/or their employees. Building and maintaining a business is always top of mind. But, entrepreneurs and freelancers can protect themselves financially -- and provide themselves with benefits such as health, disability and life insurance as well as retirement and investment products -- more easily than they may realize. 


    Carol Harnett, president of the Council for Disabiilty Awareness, will talk through benefits, retirement and investment options with Jennifer Fitgerald, CEO and Co-Founder of Policy Genius and financial planner, Mary Beth Storjohann (a paid spokesperson for the CDA), of Workable Wealth.

    2016 Outlook for Health Care & Benefits

    in Business

    The new season of HealthCare Consumerism Radio gets underway this morning as hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field welcome special guests from ECFC and Acclaris. Topics on today's show will include the “Cadillac” tax, account-based plans and more, with an underlying focus on an industry outlook for the year ahead.


    The first guest is Bill Sweetnam, the legislative and technical director for ECFC, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and expanding employee benefit programs on a tax-advantaged basis. In this interview, Bill will discuss being a part of the ECFC for the past six months and the significant strides the organization is poised to make in advancing health care consumerism in 2016. A 30-year industry veteran, Bill will also discuss the work underway, the repercussions of the “Cadillac” tax and the ongoing initiative of the ECFC to repeal it.


    The second guest on the show is Seth Ravine, the chief revenue officer for Acclaris, a Willis Towers Watson company. With a new year now underway, some things still don’t change. The two core components that are needed to drive effective health care initiatives will remain the same: long-term engagement and an integrated experience. However, there will be changes in the year ahead to make those components a reality. In this interview, Seth will discuss his five industry predictions for a successful new year.

    Show #127: Repositioning Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Special Guests: Andy Heath, co-founder of WeThrive; Piers Bishop, co-founder of WeThrive and Janine Osmond, Head of L&D at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust


    At WeThrive we spend our working lives talking to people whose lot is to create or maintain an engaged workforce. They don’t always put it like that – the expressed desire might be to have a happy staff, or to improve employee retention, but what they actually want in the end is a workforce that really wants to engage with the company and their work. That doesn’t just happen, of course; it’s a consequence of getting a lot of other things right, so since 2011 we have been working on a way to help HR and L&D people move employee engagement out of the realm of ‘good idea, but…’ and into the very heart of the people-management efforts.


    Janine is in the ‘interesting’ position of trying to help NHS staff stay engaged with their work at a time when the organisation is under more pressure than ever to deliver more with less, and we’d very much like to hear from you too – please email us with questions or topics you’d like covered on the show, starting at 5.15 on September 7th.

    Total Employee Well-being & Private Exchanges for Smaller Employers

    in Business

    On 2015's final program, the hosts talk with special guests from TailorWell and CBIZ on topics related to private exchanges and workplace wellness. After a short break for the holidays, we'll be back on the air on Friday, Jan. 15.


    The first guest on this week's show is Peter Morris, CEO of TailorWell, a Seattle-based tech company that builds product-centered private exchanges for smaller employers (five to 500 employees). Zillow’s model in the real estate industry can be applied in the small group health insurance market. While brokers are scrambling to respond to competing business models from the likes of Zenefits and Gusto, their small employer customers remain under-served. The majority of small employers are concerned about providing health insurance because it’s the right thing to do, and they want the right product at the right price. They value product and price transparency, and seek guidance and value from their broker. In this interview, Peter and the hosts will discuss how to deliver what small employers need in a more efficient and valuable way.


    The second guest on the show – and final guest of 2015 – is Emily Noll, the national director of CBIZ Wellness Solutions. In this interview, Emily and the hosts will discuss improving employee engagement with holistic well-being programs. Employers are taking the next step in workplace wellness: they’re focusing on complete employee well-being. Rather than solely focusing on employees’ physical health, the move focuses on complete well-being to improve all areas of life – including health physically, mentally, financially, socially, emotionally, etc. Other trends in the wellness/well-being space in 2016 involve incorporating wearable devices into programs and using gamification to produce results.
