Healthcare reform is here and it is contributing to an explosion of part-time workers, even as the government tweaks ACA deadlines. While the employer mandate is delayed, effective January 1, 2014, individuals are required to have health insurance or face fines. Many employers have begun managing their employees to fewer than 30 hours per week. These employees look to their employer for solutions and even if the benefits are voluntary, employees appreciate the knowledge of an HR department, the ease and pre-tax benefits of payroll deduction, and the knowledge share among co-workers. How can you attract and retain the best part-timer workers?
This seminar will present an overview of the need (or lack thereof) for legal and identity-theft mitigation offerings in the voluntary benefits marketplace, including a comparison of the approaches, the prices, and the “players” in the industry.

We will touch on different factors in determining offerings and enrollment conditions, as well as industry- and sized-based concerns. Of particular interest will be the information showing how identity theft impacts both the employee and the employer, and how both share the risk.

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.

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.

Half of Americans do have access to a retirement savings plan at their workplace. For those that do, about one-third fail to join. And for those that do join tend to save too little and often make unwise investment decisions. The 401(k) arena is in crisis, and workers need sound guidance and help.
This webinar will focus on the behavioral challenges that have led to the crisis- inertia, limited self-control, loss aversion, and myopia. From there we can then begin to understand how the typical worker makes decisions inside their 401(k) account. Then we can begin to transform their behavior by creating solutions, or tools, that are based upon cutting edge behavioral finance research. Then we can then dramatically improve outcomes by, helping employees help themselves by learning how they make decisions inside their retirement plans.
Exploring all channels of potential ROI is fast becoming an important element for companies adopting a comprehensive Corporate Wellness Program.
