HR Happy Hour 206 - Live from Benefitfocus OnePlace 2015
Recorded Wednesday March 11, 2015
Hosts: Trish McFarlane, Steve Boese
Guests: Shawn Jenkins, Shan Fowler
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve did a live show from the Benefitfocus OnePlace 2015 event in Orlando, Florida, (Trish was on assignment this week at the Peoplefluent event in Miami).
On the show Steve was joined by Shawn Jenkins, President, CEO, and Co-founder of Benefitfocus and Shan Fowler, Benefitfocus' Director of Marketplaces. Benefitfocus provides robust, modern, and powerful technologies for the management, communication, and the employee experience with their benefits programs -both for employers as well as carriers and exchange providers.
On the show, Shawn and Shan shared some of the history of Benefitfocus, and how Benefitfocus' offerings help employers and providers to meet their goals of engaging, educating, and providing the most effective benefits programs for their employees and enrollees.
One of the most important ways that average employees interact with workplace technologies is how they interact with their employer's benefits technology. These employee experiences are critically important ones, impacting employee's engagement, well-being, and helping them to take care of themselves and the welfare of their families, and modern tech can help organizations in numerous ways.
This was a great show, and many thanks to Shawn and Shan for being a part of the fun.
