On this week's program, hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz will be back in the studio to discuss defined contribution, private exchanges and healthy eating in the workplace with special guests from ebenefit Marketplace and Zipongo.
The first guest on this week's program will be Frank Mengert, Partner and Director of Exchange Technology, ebenefit Marketplace. Frank joins the hosts for a lively discussion as we talk about the changes in the private exchange landscape as we journey into our fourth open enrollment. In this interview, you will find out real answers to questions that impact the markets in which most brokers play (2-99 and 100-1000 employees). With all of the media hype that has played out over the past few years, Frank and the hosts will discuss how the industry has adopted, what the key findings are and what has been slow in certain growth areas – as well as what the outlook could be in the next few years.
The second guest on the show will be Jason Langheier, MD, MPH, CEO and Founder, Zipongo, a San Francisco-based digital health company that makes it easy to eat well. Zipongo shows how behavioral economics reveal how small changes in our environment have profound effects on our individual choices. When we change our food environment, we can positively affect the kinds of decisions we make about food. Investing in prevention science must be a top priority for the health of the nation and its employers. In this interview, Jason and the hosts will discuss how Zipongo makes healthy eating simple, improves biometrics and yields healthier outcomes.
