To register:  Benefits to Banjos | Are We Making Music or Just Clapping Along?

Program Summary: 

A good benefits plan has a lot in common with good music: timing, audience, and authenticity are everything.

As HR professionals, we need to move past the traditional view that basic medical, dental, vision, etc. are employee benefits. These benefits are a standard cost of doing business. Organizations that will thrive through “the great resignation” are those that prioritize employee well-being and seek to address the needs of their unique population.

Join Calli and she discusses the value, ROI, and often low cost of getting creative to offer employee-centric benefits that improve lives.

Learning Objectives: 

1.       Our standard benefits package (Medical, Dental, 401k, STD, LTD, etc.) is not a benefit - it's a requirement

2.       Your employee population is unique, get to know what's under the hood to find new ways to support them as humans

3.       We have a nasty habit of thinking "benefits" are expensive. There's a lot we can do with minimal or no added cost

4.       Benefits must be specific and address a real population need

5.       Capitalize on social capital in the workplace

Filling yet another hole, she’s currently the Director of Outreach and Engagement for Wanido Workforce Well-Being.  She focuses her energy educating employers on the extensive benefits of creating an engaged and empowered workforce.
