Description:



As health care expenses continue to rise, employers are looking for opportunities to rebalance the total compensation package (“total rewards") that they offer their employees. Join us for a discussion connecting bswift's deep data sets and industry experts’ viewpoints on the different strategies employers are using to address total rewards.

Topics of discussion will include:



  • Will employers continue to reduce their contributions to spousal and dependent benefits?
  • Does the public exchange option require employers to think differently about subsidizing dependent benefits?
  • Can expanding ancillary and voluntary benefit options or adding new benefits like pet insurance mitigate a reduction in health benefits?
  • How are employees responding to expanded ancillary and voluntary benefit offerings?
  • Are employees making smart choices and tradeoffs between tax-advantaged savings options such as HSAs and 401(k)s to expand their retirement savings?
