Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 29, 2017
Based on research from Guardian’s Fourth Annual Workplace Benefits Study, this webinar provides insight into the challenges employers face in trying to balance both short-term and long-term benefits demands. Are employers struggling with the complexity of managing employee benefits programs? Adding to the growing complexity, companies are finding that the short-term strategies used to control costs, improve efficiency, and maintain compliance have been ineffective or unsustainable. More employers recognize the need to take a different approach to their benefits strategies and are leveraging the expanding technology and expertise of external partners while focusing more on workforce well-being and productivity.
To help HR professionals and business owners better balance short-term and long-term benefits demands, United Benefit Advisors (UBA), in conjunction with Guardian, will host a webinar—“Benefits Balancing Act: The Age of Benefits Administration Technology”—on Wednesday, April 19, at 2:00 p.m. EDT. To receive complimentary access to the webinar, enter code GRdianApr19UBA at registration. This webinar has been submitted for 1.25 re-certification credit hours from the Human Resource Certification Institute.
Scott Robb, Assistant Vice President, Customer Eligibility & Payment Services at Guardian, says, “Employers are juggling many priorities these days. Smarter use of technology to improve benefits administration efficiency and compliance is simply a must for many firms. Our industry is beginning to leverage new technology like never before, and it can make a huge difference for small and medium-size firms.”
