Microsoft’s Template for Workforce Success: Holistic Well-being Support

The pandemic exposed a phenomenon that had been gradually building: We’re facing an employee well-being tsunami whose risks go beyond just burnout, threatening the strength, resilience and cohesiveness of our workforces. Fred Thiele will outline how HR leaders can architect and communicate a truly holistic approach to well-being that encompasses its principal dimensions — physical, financial and mental/social. He’ll also explore how this holistic approach is indispensable to supporting a diverse employee population as the workforce navigates the twists and turns of the modern, hybrid workplace. You’ll learn how you can help your employees not merely survive, but thrive, during this time.

Cisco’s Integrated Benefits Experience: A Future-ready Engagement Model

Despite employers’ increased investment in highly differentiated and valuable benefits programs, many employees struggle with awareness, enrollment, utilization and perceived value of their offerings. To address this challenge, Cisco developed the Integrated Benefits Experience, a high-tech, high-touch offering that engages all populations. Whether through mobile devices, web browsers, chat, virtual agents, telephony or Webex, more than 45,000 U.S. and Canadian employees, interns and retirees now receive hyper-personalized content, advocacy, navigation and engagement. Hear about Cisco’s multi-year journey from the whiteboard to the board room, lessons learned and what’s next for this first-of-its-kind integrated offering.

DAY 3
Ilyse Schuman

Senior Vice President, Health Policy, American Benefits Council

Ilyse Schuman

Employee Benefits Update:
Politics, Process & Public Policy

Legislative proposals and regulatory activity addressing health and retirement benefits and paid leave programs continue to be prominent in Congress’ agenda. But legislative gridlock has compelled Congressional leaders and the White House to find alternative paths to advance their policy goals. Challenges in the federal legislative process also translate into more employee benefits activity in the regulatory arena and at the state level. Join this popular annual session to learn what this means for employer-plan sponsors and how they approach benefits compliance in 2023-2024 and beyond. You’ll learn best practices, what to do before expanding or changing health or leave programs, and how to best make changes.
