  • New HR trends such as AI, wellness vendor consolidation, gender affirmation, fertility support and others that need to be considered within your group benefits offering
Session #2: Designing the Best Group Benefits Plan You Can Imagine

A Group Benefits plan is only as good as its design. It needs to be developed with your budget in mind and allocate/prioritize resources to ensure you can achieve your objectives. Our experts will provide valuable tips and share proven best practices on this topic. You’ll learn:

  • How to prevent surprises by understanding the impact your budgets will have on your plans
Session #3: What Employees Really Want in the Area of Health & Wellness

It goes without saying that the happier employees are, the more productive they will be. Part of helping them achieve this, is providing the health & wellness benefits they want, ones they will truly wish to take advantage of. That’s why it is so important to attend this session, which will provide:

  • Which health & wellness benefits work, and which do not

Session #4: A Trick Of The Trade: A Unique Tool for Group Benefits Success

The Thorpe Benefits Success Score was launched a little while ago. Since then, it has helped organizations measure the success of their Group Benefits plan. This session will provide an inside look at this tool and show the top ways you can use it to improve your own plan. You’ll receive:

  • A review of the Benefits Success Score and what it shows you
  • Information on the most popular mistakes or missed opportunities organizations make that we have discovered through our tool
  • What areas of success (design, communication, admin, wellness) the tool has identified as those ripe for improvement and an “easy win”
Session #5: Developing the Best Possible Relationship with Your Benefits Consultant/Broker

The Group Benefits business is all about relationships. The better the relationship you have with your consultant/broker, the more effective your plan will be developed, communicated, and managed. A panel of clients will share their knowledge and experiences in this critical area. You’ll find out:

  • What people like you usually need and want from their consultant/broker and how client expectations have changed
  • How to create the right balance between your carrier and consultant/broker for the services you need
