Pamela Newbold
Director, Human Resources & Staff Development, University of Mount Union


Session Description

The connection between health and financial stress has long been studied, and HR teams are increasingly recognizing that employee concerns about health and financial security make their way into the workplace in the form of decreased productivity, absenteeism, and “presenteeism”. In this session, participants will: 

  • Understand how employees make decisions regarding benefits selection, current expectations they have when it comes to their benefits, and how those expectations are shaped significantly by their retail and online experiences.
  • Hear a case study from a company that leveraged HR-driven tools to reduce PEPM costs, while making their enrollment process more efficient.
