    Consumer-Driven Health Accounts & Wearables in Wellness

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Doug Field, Ron Bachman and Brent Macy are live in the studio with special guests from Flex and Healthiest Employers for conversations on consumer-driven health accounts (HSAs, HRAs and FSAs) and the role of wearable devices in workplace wellness programs.


    The first guest on the show will be David Lindgren, Senior Manager, Compliance & Public Affairs, Flexible Benefit Service Corporation (Flex). With the ACA weighing on employers’ every health care decision, it is no surprise that they are doing whatever they can to stabilize costs for themselves, while better engaging their employees into the cost-sharing process. The integration of consumer-driven health accounts has rapidly emerged at the workplace as a key strategy to combat rising health care costs. As an advocate in this marketplace, Flex pondered how many employers are offering these plans, how offer rates differ by employer size and, in light of the ACA, what the future holds for their growth or demise. In this segment, David and the hosts will discuss the key findings from a recent survey that collected responses from more than 500 employers of all sizes throughout the U.S.


    The second guest on this week's program will be Rod Reasen, Chief Executive Officer of Healthiest Employers. The wearable movement is here. In fact, according to a new survey from Healthiest Employers, 54 percent of employers are looking to purchase wearables in the next twelve months. Yet, only seven percent have a plan to use the data to improve health. In this interview, Rod and the hosts will outline what employers want in an a wearable, the reasons to purchase and how to “connect the dots” between activity and outcomes.

    Will Small Business Gain From Corporate Tax Overhaul? - SBEC's Ray Keeting

    in Entrepreneur

    The Obama Administration and Congress have been at odds for months over a major overhaul of U.S. Corporate tax laws. Everyone seems to agree that something should be done but how will small business owners benefit? 


     Raymond J. Keating who serves as chief economist with the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council), a nonpartisan, nonprofit small-business advocacy group, says corporate tax reform alone won't get the job done and instead insists it has to be comprehensive across the board tax reform. Keeting, who talks with host Kelly Scanlon, maintains small business owners who employee 55 percent of the private sector workforce and earn more than 60 percent of net business income shouldn't be ignored.


    Keeting writes, speaks and testifies on a wide range of issues affecting the entrepreneurial sector of the economy.

    What do you think about these Instructions

    in Self Help

    FBI University is a school of Faith Based Instructions. Wherein, we extract the wisdom of God from the text of scripture, fashion it into practical principles of instructions, and present them through daily devotionals. Obedience to these instructions turns beliefs into behavior that advances our economical, emotional, and intellectual wellbeing. Now stay tuned as John Marshall teaches you how that by following instructions you coach yourself into the Champion Circle.


    Jesus never sought to change the quality of one’s existence through prayer alone. Jesus sought to change the quality of life by issuing a set of instructions. Even to Lazarus, who had been dead for four days, Jesus gave a set of instructions, “Lazarus, come forth” (John 11:43). Had Lazarus dishonored the instructions, he would have remained dead. His quality of life changed due to his willingness to honor the set of instructions that Jesus issued to him. Prayer is a powerful tool. I continually use that God-authorized empowerment tool. However, do not seek to alter your course in life by prayer alone. God seeks to improve your life by giving you a set of instructions.


    (1) The quality of the instructions that you follow helps to produce the quality of life you will enjoy.


    (2) The instructions you follow today create the quality of life you will enjoy tomorrow.


    (3) Yesterday’s programming takes today’s instructions and orchestrate tomorrow’s outcome.


    (4) Therefore, the instructions you massage into your mind today will determine how well you manage your life tomorrow. Indeed it is true, a better you begins with a grace view of God


    (5) Only when you follow divine counsel do you enjoy maximum quality of health within your spirit.

    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #11

    in Business

     



    The disease of indifference to others. This is where each leader thinks only of himself or herself, and loses the sincerity and warmth of [genuine] human relationships. This can happen in many ways: When the most knowledgeable person does not put that knowledge at the service of less knowledgeable colleagues, when you learn something and then keep it to yourself rather than sharing it in a helpful way with others; when out of jealousy or deceit you take joy in seeing others fall instead of helping them up and encouraging them. Join Johnnie and his guest co-host Robert Stephens, the famous founder of Geek Squad, reknowned entrepeneur and inspirational leader, as they tackle the dialogue of selfish leadership and how it can tear apart even the greatest organizations.
