DirectPath, Salient CRGT and TKC Holdings to Speak at the CEB 2017 ReimagineHR Conference
Salient CRGT’s Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Kay Curling will speak alongside TKC Holdings’ Director of Human Resources Support Dawn Hammond on a panel, Three Winning Strategies for Engaging Today’s Workforce on their Benefit Choices, at Reimagine HR, hosted by CEB, now Gartner, October 18-20 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center near Washington, D.C. Bart Yancey, co-founder and CEO of DirectPath, an industry leader in employee engagement, health care transparency and compliance, will moderate the panel. Curling, Hammond and Yancey will discuss how businesses can adapt to breaking trends that are disrupting the employee benefits industry. Studies have shown that changing long-held approaches from one-size-fits-all benefit structures to benefits tailored to individual needs are achieving cost savings and increasing employee retention.
Technology and on-demand economy services like Amazon, Uber and Netflix have conditioned the millennial generation to expect greater access to information, and particularly information that is customized to their needs. This expectation extends to myriad aspects of millennial life, and health care benefits are no exception: nearly 60 percent of employees want customized benefit options based on their personal information. In response to new employee demands, human resource teams are finding it necessary to revamp their approach to benefits.
“Salient CRGT partners with DirectPath to provide employees benefit education that is tailored to their specific circumstances. This concierge level service ensures employees select the benefits that best fit their specific circumstances. Whether the employee engages with the DirectPath benefit educator on-site or by phone, we can be certain that the benefit educator is an extension of our brand and embraces our service ethos,” said Curling.
The panel will address:
- What employees are demanding today – greater benefits education, more opportunities for savings, and guidance to make sense of the evolving health care landscape
- What steps HR teams can take to meet employee needs – actively engaging employees on their options, communicating information frequently and across channels and offering transparency and advocacy services
- How HR benefits from these changes – attracting and retaining top talent, as well as helping HR teams and the larger business save on time and money
“The health care benefits landscape is extremely complex, and employees are increasingly seeking guidance around how to select options that deliver the care they need while controlling costs,” said Yancey. ” This presents a huge opportunity for HR to educate and engage employees around their health care decisions. By actively engaging employees, HR teams will not only be better equipped to attract and retain top talent, but reduce unnecessary health care costs for their businesses.”
