One of the biggest and most important issues facing Human Resources and Talent pros in 2013 is Health Care Reform. Call it what you like - Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, or simply HCR - the changes that are starting in 2013 will impact all size organizations and their employees.
This week on the show we will be joined by John Barkett from Extend Health, and Jennifer Benz of Benz Communications to dig into the issues facing HR pros in 2013 and beyond. John, prior to joining Extend Health, spent more than 2 years in Washington contributing to the writing, passage, and implementation of the PPACA; and Jennifer is CEO of the leading Benefits Communication Consultancies in the USA.
Just some of the topics we will cover on the show:
What are the most important aspects of HCR that you as an HR pro need to know?
How does HCR and its implications and demands differ across company size?
What key communications messages and strategies do you need to consider when keeping your employees informed?
What does the medium and longer term look like in the world of employer-sponsored benefits?
Where can the HR and Talent pro go to learn more?
I hope you can join hosts Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane and our guests this week for what will be an interesting and important topic.
