1:00 PM | Leveraging Non-Medical Benefit Programs
Presented by Jason Edwards, Manager, Voluntary Benefits, Cottingham & Butler and Krista Sigman, Assistance Vice President, Benefits, Cottingham & Butler
Often times, these benefits can be easily overlooked, but they have the opportunity to provide a robust offering to employees, especially when they need it most. Employers everywhere are looking for ways to enhance their overall Employee Benefits program, while not breaking the budget, these benefits can be just the solution. We will share the awareness these benefits programs can have and the benefits they provide with regard to recruiting and retention.
2:00 PM | Follow the Leaders: What High Performing Employers Are Doing to Curb Costs & Boost Employee Value
Presented by Taylor Orton, Vice President, Benefits – Cottingham & Butler
In an old social science theory known as the “Diffusion of Innovation Theory”, there are five types of adopters in the world of innovation, including: Innovators, Early Adopters, Early Majority, Late Majority, and Laggards. While there are the five categories, the distribution in each is not equivalent, as only about 16% of organizations are truly considered Innovators (2.5%) or Early Adopters (13.5%). This 16% is often known as the market leader in their respective field, as most competitors often lag behind adoption and copy ideas well after they are proven a success. While it is understandable that not every organization has the risk tolerance levels required to be a true innovator, finding ways to expedite that knowledge transfer is imperative for the remaining 84% of employers to have any competitive advantage in the market. In this session, participants will learn about the leading edge strategies being used by innovative employers to have a competitive edge in the Great Resignation.
3:00 PM | Staying Power: How to Keep Employees Longer
