In this presentation, Jason Rothman, an employee benefits attorney with the international labor and employment law firm of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart, P.C. will cover two key employee benefit plan issues that all employers must understand: (1) the Affordable Care Act employer mandate, including guidance issued this summer delaying employer mandate assessments until 2015; and (2) the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in the case of United States v. Windsor ruling that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. These two developments significantly impact employee benefit plans and require employers to take strategic action in the near future to comply with the requirements thereunder.
Employers and HR departments who are ahead of the game concerning Healthcare Reform are will excel above those who aren't. This presentation will be a good resource from a planning and execution phase this year as we work through this ever-important navigational transition happening now. You'll learn about the entire delivery system from the time you sign the expensive group insurance rates to the time your employee walks in the door at the doctors office and how it all ties in. Stay up to speed on the newest trends, technology, and tolls available to you and your staff as well.
Good business decisions require good data, and that’s one of the areas that HR has historically struggled. Not that HR hasn’t provided reams of reports on performance distributions, compensation change percent and time to hire, but are those really the information needed to make better business decisions? With HR moving from tactical resource to strategic mover and shaker the time of status reporting is past. HR must be able to answer cause and effect questions that are more predictive than reactive. Industry experts will review the areas that must be improved to create HR metrics that can stand side-by-side with the numbers from Finance, Product Development and Sales.
Decision support tools can help your employees understand, appreciate and make better use of their benefits - and at the same time, the analytics derived from these tools can help you improve your programs and increase employee engagement and satisfaction. Without tools and analytics, you and your employees are planning in the dark.
Join us for a one-hour webcast that will provide insight into how ADP's Decision Support Tools and Analytics can help you drive desired results.
During this informative webcast, we will also delve into a real-life case study and look at the results achieved by one of our clients: increased enrollment in desired health plans, increased tax savings for employees and increased FICA savings for the employer.
Under health care reform, voluntary benefits will play an increasingly important role in many employers’ benefits strategies. Many employers will shift toward providing only bare-bones core medical coverage and transferring more responsibility for additional coverage to the employee via voluntary benefits offerings.
In this webinar, you'll learn how employers are reacting in different ways to changes under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and how voluntary benefits could help you react seamlessly to these changes. We'll outline key ingredients for a successful voluntary benefit program, commonly offered voluntary benefits, and ways that voluntary benefits can solve employers' and workers' headaches under health care reform.
As health insurance costs continue to spiral upward at an alarming rate, it has become painfully clear, that the “traditional” strategies of changing insurance carriers, changing plan designs, and changing employee contributions will not and cannot provide any form of sustainability or predictability over the long term. All these strategies do is shift risk from one insurance carrier to another, or shift costs and liability from the insurance carrier or employer onto the employee.
Employers must change their thinking from that or RISK TRANSFERENCE to RISK MANAGEMENT when it comes to their employee benefits program. This presentation will outline the three areas of risk in an employer sponsored health insurance plan, and how to effectively manage that risk.
Learn how the choices you make could affect your organization.

Tips and Pointers for Conducting a System Implementation
Presented by Tom Sonde of SilverRoad Solutions
Implementing new technology does not guarantee efficiency. There’s a lot more to a successful system implementation then simply letting your IT department hire a system implementation firm to install your new software.
Surveys have reported that up to 90% of organizations are dissatisfied with their HR system. While some of the blame should rightfully be directed at the software provider a significant portion of the issues can be traced directly back to an inadequate implementation.
Whether you are implementing a traditional HR system, one of the new cloud based systems or an add-on such as an online recruiting solution there are a host of things you, as the HR practitioner, should address.
This session will identify and discuss the keys to a successful implementation. It is non-technical and is designed to provide the HR practitioner with practical tips for conducting a systems implementation.
What You Will Learn:
1. Why system implementations fail, who is to blame and how to avoid them.
2. What are the key areas to focus on and how to address them.
3. How to marry process with technology and apply best practices.
4. How to take advantage of delivered system functionality
This session will support Human Resource professionals with understanding the value of a full replacement CDHP with HSA benefit design and how to overcome the implementation pitfalls associated with most of today’s CDHP plan designs. Attendees will be provided with the key aspects of the most efficient and effective implementation for a full replacement CDHP strategy and how to use these strategies to create a culture of health and promote personal accountability and responsibility for health among employees.
