ACI Specialty Benefits, a top-ranked global benefits provider, is excited to announce that Senior Vice President of Marketing/IT Tim Mutrie and Senior Vice President of Client Partnerships Gilbert Manzano will be presenting "Brace for Impact: Action Plan for When Disaster Strikes," at HR West 2019 on Monday, March 11, at 2:35 PM.

In 2018 alone, the U.S. experienced more than 330 mass shootings, 18,800 structures were destroyed and more than 85 people lost their lives in California's deadliest wildfire, and overdoses became the number one killer of Americans younger than 50. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 40% of businesses never reopen after a natural disaster, and of those that do, only 29% are still operating two years later.

Instead of waiting for a crisis to happen, organizational leaders need to prepare, protect their people and protect the business. In this dynamic session, Mutrie and Manzano will get real about the impact of crisis at the workplace, review a harrowing case study, and provide an action plan for HR leaders to bring back to their workplaces. HR West Conference attendees will walk away with five key areas of crisis readiness to mitigate risk, build resilience and protect the workforce in the event of critical incidents, natural disasters and workplace violence.
