Pre-Conference Workshops:

Workshop A: The Power of Resilience: Enable Your Workforce to Thrive in the Face of Change and Disruption

Today’s fast-paced, constantly changing and competitive world is overwhelming us. The challenge of integrating demands from work and life is pulling us in all directions, creating distress and draining our energy. How is it that some people are productive and creative through stress and chaos, while others falter? 

Resilience can be a determining factor in job satisfaction and success. Resilience allows individuals, organizations and teams to re-imagine what is possible and thrive in the face of change and disruption. And the good news is: resilience can be both measured and learned. Resilience training engages and empowers employees to become their most vibrant, productive and successful selves.  

This workshop will provide:

  • Experiential learning of the essential elements of resilience training
  • Exclusive presentations from experts in the field
  • Discussions with leading employers who have real-world experience implementing resilience training 

This workshop is designed to be highly engaging, fun, exciting and intellectually stimulating, and aims to create a lot of buzz and energy to inspire you throughout the rest of the conference and when you return to the office

March 8, 2017
01:30 PM - 05:00 PM

Workshop B: Thinking Through the Full Consequences of New Specialty Pharmaceutical Plan Designs

The cost of specialty pharmaceuticals has been of growing concern to employers over the past several years. However, as employers re-consider new plan design options, it is critical they more fully understand the complete consequences of their decisions — consequences that include the impact of adherence and medical care on such outcomes as absence, disability employee performance and productivity. The faculty will address topics such as:

  • The impact of low prevalence diseases (such as rheumatoid rthritis) that generate high direct and indirect costs
  • The review of a resource that provides a primer for participants to better understand the nuances associated with specialty pharmacy
  • How to follow the dollar through the maze of specialty pharmacy and the potential impact on you as an employer and your employees
  • The impact of out-of-pocket costs on the employer and employee
  • The significance of treating employees with specialty agents based on indications and not PBM contracts

Examples will be highlighted from employers on how they are addressing specialty pharmacy with the goal of improving outcomes while mitigating direct and indirect costs.

March 8, 2017
01:30 PM - 05:00 PM

Workshop C: The Changing Benefits Landscape: Exploring Tailored Solutions to Modernize Your Benefits Delivery

Human Resources professionals are constantly challenged to modernize their benefits in order to attract, engage and retain top talent across multiple generations. Private health care exchanges have evolved into a powerful and cost-effective engine to drive innovative benefits strategy and delivery. Join us for a discussion to learn where private exchanges are heading and how they can propel your organization’s employee value proposition forward.

Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • Dynamic characteristics of private exchanges that can help your organization meet the evolving needs of multigenerational workforces
  • The data behind decision-making support and how technology leads employees to choose and use benefits more effectively
  • The importance of an excellent employee experience, and how to sustain and grow employee engagement long after annual enrollment
