HR Happy Hour 205 - The Health & Benefits Leadership Conference Preview
Recorded Thursday March 5, 2015
Hosts: Trish McFarlane, Steve Boese
Guest: Jennifer Benz
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Trish and Steve were joined by Jennifer Benz, Founder and CEO of Benz Communications, and Program Chair for Human Resource Executive's Health & Benefits Leadership Conference, to be held April 8 - 10, 2015 at the Aria in Las Vegas.
On the show, Jennifer shared some of the most important themes and challenges facing Benefits and HR leaders today - health care plan design and reform, employee and financial wellness, and the importance of educating and effectively communicating with employees on important benefits, wellness, and welfare issues.
On the show, Jen shared a preview of how the Conference can and will help you as a leader in making these critically important benefits-related organizational decisions that impact employee engagement, reputation, and retention.
We also lamented again (well, mostly Steve), about the terrible winter weather, Steve shared a slightly disturbing tale of a former neighbor and his snowblower, and Trish offered to talk about Benefits plan design with anyone at any time. We also talked about how cool the word 'formulary' is.
Also, listeners of the show who attend the Health & Benefits Leadership Conference can use the registration discount code BOESE15 (all caps), to receive $75 off the current registration rate.
Thanks to Jen for such a fun and interesting show!
