“As an employer, I’m looking to find effective and innovative ways to offer benefits to my employees that minimize costs and increase value, while helping to attract and retain top talent.”

Employee benefits are a cornerstone of Brad’s company’s compensation, recruiting, and Human Capital Management (HCM) strategy. His C-suite is focused on attracting, engaging, and retaining talent through an innovative benefits offering. With healthcare costs on a trajectory to rise even higher, he is always on the lookout for ways to reduce the cost of employer-provided benefits, while ensuring his multigenerational employees and their dependents are getting the coverage they need. Brad tries to keep up to date with the constantly changing government-regulatory environment — but it isn’t easy. He’s hoping to learn best practices for managing reporting, regulatory changes, and offering a benefits package that creates a healthy, happy, and productive workforce in the most cost-effective manner.
